FINDING MY ROOTS AND OTHER STORIES is an “epic” work

Dr. Subryan’s stories span her years from adolescence to adulthood, and in that sense FINDING MY ROOTS AND OTHER STORIES is an “epic” work. It is of note that her quest begins with a story having the same name as her book. All of the stories that follow are significant secondary roots that help to firmly anchor her to Mackenzie, the Guyana place of her birth. Dr. Subryan’s quest is not a lonely one–readers journey along with her on the Demerara River to self-discovery, patriotism, the implications of race and color, racial hatred and deadly violence, love, betrayal and harsh justice, national landmarks, core stories of a nation, violence against women, hurtful imprudence, pleasant nostalgia, and strong women.
