In this docu-novel an unlikely relationship developed between an island man from Grenada and a Kansas woman in the 1950’s. Both worked in Brooklyn and became casually acquainted until they vacationed at his family’s modest cottage in rural Grenada. Though mesmerized by everything Grenadian, his guest experienced disquieting cultural shocks. Every experience, pleasant and unpleasant, she diligently recorded including details of their slow moving island-style romance. Driven to socially construct her multicultural family tree, their American-born granddaughter visited Grenada sixty years later. The flamboyant social life, intimacy and intense spicy aura captivated her and like her grandmother she too was inescapably “Caribbeanized.”
