Synopsis:

Robert Antoni took the literary world by storm with his first novel, Divina Trace, which won the Commonwealth Writers Prize and is widely recognized as a landmark in Caribbean literature. His second novel, Blessed Is the Fruit, received extraordinary literary praise and was hailed by Robert Olen Butler as "an enduring work of art." My Grandmother's Erotic Folktales is a seductive collection of folktales retold by an exotic grandmother to her innocent young grandson. Set amid the lush landscape of the island of Corpus Christi during World War II, these erotic tales were originally meant to keep the U.S. servicemen who were stationed on the island out of the brothels — and out of trouble. Now, in her ninety-seventh year, the widow tells these stories as a tapestry of interlocking and exaggerated memories — all the more colorful for the retelling. "May infuse even the most jaded adult readers with a strangely rejuvenating delight." — The Seattle Times "Sly as it is funny and revealing as it is bold." — The Miami Herald "As surprising and luminous as a hidden tropical waterfall" — The Washington Post
