My Grandmother’s Violin
This chapter presents the author's reflections on issues of sexuality in the Caribbean context. It also provides some extended family history. She says that growing up with what she saw as an already sexually liberated mother in a time before the sexual revolution of the 1960s and 1970s is something that she cherishes. For the first nine or ten years of her life, she was blissfully nurtured, loved, cared for in an extended family situation in Trinidad, but one in which her mother was always her center. Then, as she entered adolescence, she began to get a sense that there also existed a bourgeois social standard, though many others around lived lives that resisted compliance and expressed themselves more naturally and organically.
