    Edited by Nicholas Laughlin with Nailah Folami Imoja

    So Many Islands brings together stories from the distant shores of the island communities in the Caribbean, Mediterranean, Indian Ocean and Pacific. Giving voice to their challenges and triumphs, these writers paint a vibrant portrait of what it is like to live, love and loose the things most precious to them on the small islands they call home.

    This enchanting collection will transport you to Marakei, ‘the women’s island’, where a female statue stands guard at each compass point, and introduce you to colourful characters like Leno Humphrey, a small-time cricketer from St. Vincent & the Grenadines who buys his own trophies to take back to his wife.

    Voicing global issues such as nuclear testing in the Pacific and climate change – a fight close to the heart of these precariously poised islands – to petty politics and the gaps between generations, readers everywhere will find universal connections with these words and worlds.
