To come to terms with globalization, Caribbean writers adopt unexpected strategies. They write about flowers to help us look at race and sexuality differently. They see gardening as a means to make a violent, shapeless world livable. Writing the earth in a dark, queer turn to its materiality allows the imagining of human existence in a new way.
