Read full description of the books Yemaya's Belly:I picked up Yemaya's Belly because I was blown away by the sensitivity and beauty of Hudes' Elliot: A Soldier's Fugue. This touching, circular fable tells the story of a young boy trying to make it to America after a tragic fire claims his parents and their entire village.
A carefully thought-out, slowly paced drama, this play on the surface seems to be about everything and nothing. But as the reader reaches the final pages, it is revealed through a stunning goddess that the art of story is the legacy of each character, and the safe haven of those lost and those searching. Through trial and tribulation, they carry their experiences with them; these experiences shape how they grow and how they approach the mystery--hopeful or not--that lies ahead.
Full of the fanciful dreams and childhood, but also stuffed with the cold realities of adult life, this play is a strange adventure from a playwright whose work merits further consideration.
