Description

This book features a tropical island in the Indian Ocean, and three women in a prison cell built for two. A cyclone is building outside. It casts its mauve shadow inside the prison cell colouring their skin and the dull grey blankets. Their stomachs growling with hunger, Juna, Leila and Mama Gracienne begin to tell each other their stories, the crimes for which they stand condemned, and to exchange recipes to keep the hunger at bay. As the bonds of friendship grow, so too do the seeds of rebellion as the cyclone draws them into its embrace. "Mutiny" is a powerful and hypnotic story about the kinship between women and of justice, in all its forms. 'Staggering demonstrates the subversive power of words. The protagonists have been stripped of everything except the language in their heads. And with this alone they survive, curse, dance, revolt, once defeated, will resist again. A break-out and a breakthrough. Magnificent' - John Berger.show more
