Something Buried in the Yard journeys into the Guyanese subconscious imagination, where identities are configured not by politics and race but cultural and collective experiences. The spiritual practice of Komfa is performed as a sacred ancestral rite and healing of the nation. The novel is set in 1992, at the time of the election that ended the 28 year rule of the African led People’s National Congress, and which gained victory for the East Indian led People’s Progressive Party. Explored through the eyes of ancestral spirits, this powerfully intriguing narrative compels all its characters to re-examine personal histories and ways of interacting with each other and their world.
