Gather the Faces Book Review

Book review: “Gather the Faces” by Beryl Gilroy.
Genre: Poetry
No movie

In this richly comic novel of Black British life, the heroine has resigned herself to growing old and single in her bible-soaked family. But when she is introduced to a young man from Guyana, she decides to marry him and return to the Caribbean. But will this be another entrapment, another loss of self? Gather the Faces is set in the nineteen-eighties in London and Guyana, but in some ways, looks back to an earlier era. Marvella, the heroine and narrator, leaves Guyana when she is three, and grows up in London where ‘At the back of the house, a bombed-out block stared at us, like a gaping mouth full of broken teeth. It represented what I had been taught of the world, the flesh and the devil.’ The Guyana to which she returns is an idyllic one, peopled with characters like Uncle Buff, the village man of words, who makes a speech to ‘Mr. Bride and Mrs. Groom’ before his ‘melancholy and surreptitious rendering of “”Bless this house””.’ Uncle Buff and the tranquil beauty of the Guyanese countryside recall an earlier work by Beryl Gilroy, Sunlight on Sweet Water, her reminiscences of a Guyanese childhood.

The Joseph Perspective

Joseph’s story is the root of jealousy, envy, and pride. Eric Stender tells the story of betrayal against Joseph by those he loved the most. Joseph, who was loved dearly by his father, loved his family. His way of loving and caring for his brothers was not accepted the way he wanted it to be accepted. Instead, his brothers were jealous of the love their father gave to Joseph and felt it was more than the love they were receiving. The Joseph Perspective is written to give the perspective of not only Joseph, but also those who attempted to kill him, tried to save him, falsely accused him of a crime he didn’t commit. However, at the end the true character of Joseph, even though tested, was revealed and he became a king. Joseph’s life tells the story of what many face today when it comes to success, money, and gifts. Jealousy and envy can lead others to do the unspeakable because they fail to see the strength in themselves and focus too much on what others have. Those who suffer from the waft of others’ jealousy have a hard time understanding why it is happening to them, but despite what Joseph went through he never allowed the situation to change his character. His resilience led to him becoming a leader whose story changed the lives of others. Purchase your copy of “The Joseph Perspective,” by Eric Stender.
