Purple Jars of Rice
Purple Jars of Rice is a collection comprising a short story, a novella, and several poems. The first tale, "Murder in the Whorehouse", recounts the lives of four sisters who have experienced one disappointment in life after the other and seemingly begin to exist in a world apart. The second story, "Sunrise over Juju Mountain", is a fictionalized memoir of a cynical young girl whose overly eccentric (and slightly perverse) father attempts to balance Old World culture with modern day distractions. And finally, the poems echo the thoughts and comments of various young students on their roles in society.
