So Many Islands: Stories from the Caribbean, Mediterranean, Indian and Pacific Oceans—edited by Nicholas Laughlin with Nailah Folami Imoja, with an introduction by Marlon James and cover photo by Nadia Huggins—is currently available in Trinidad and Tobago. The Peekash Press edition (for the Caribbean and North America) officially launched this week in Port of Spain, following the Little Island Press Pacific edition last month, with the Telegram UK/ROW edition coming out in April.

Collecting new fiction, essays and poems from seventeen countries around the world, So Many Islands brings us stories about love and protest, about childhood innocence and the traumas of history, about leaving home and trying to go home again. These writers’ island homes may seem remote on the map, but there is nothing isolated about their compelling, fresh voices.
