The Ventriloquist’s Tale

The Ventriloquist’s Tale

Author(s): Pauline Melville

Location(s): Guyana

Genre(s): Fiction

Era(s): 1920s and present day

The whole purpose of magic is the fulfilment and intensification of desire, claims the ventriloquist-narrator as he tells his stories of love and catastrophe.

The novel is a parable of miscegenation and racial exclusiveness, of nature defying culture and of the rebellious nature of love.
