Acclaimed performance artist Staceyann Chin brings her passionate lyricism to the page in a powerful memoir chronicling the resilience of one woman faced with a lifetime of struggle. Born on Christmas Day in Lottery, Jamaica, Staceyann was thrust into the arms of a mother who did not want her. It was her grandmother who stepped in to nurture and provide for her and her older brother, but when the three are separated, Staceyann was again left to survive in an unfamiliar and unwelcome home in Paradise, Jamaica. The Other Side of Paradise is an unforgettable story told with grace, humour and strength. AND StaceyAnn will be here in Toronto in all her glory to launch this wonderful book with the Toronto Women's Bookstore and give all of us hungry Toronto fans a LIVE reading! (deliriumslibrarian)
