Central American and Caribbean Short Stories PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Central American and Caribbean Short Stories free pdf Parts of Central America and most of the Caribbean islands have been turned into attractive, and often expensive, playgrounds for the leisure-hungry citizens of North America and Western Europe. But the individual who travels to that area of the world for reasons other than business or tourism may easily be faced with unexpected situations that can often be hilarious, but also scary and unsettling. From the traumatic shock experienced by a young Scottish woman while she lives with the peaceful Kuna Indians on the archipelago of San Blas to the unplanned adventures of a petit-bourgeois French couple in Venezuela, Tobago and Belize, the five stories that make up this collection contain, to a greater or lesser degree, the ingredients responsible for those unexpected situations. Each storyline develops from actual events and episodes in the lives of some of the main characters. These are sometimes based on real people- sometimes they are simply the product of the author's imagination. The reader must decide what is fiction and what is real, bearing in mind at all times the old cliche that "life is stranger than fiction.""
