From the jungles of Guyana to the urban jungle of Ottawa, Cyril Dabydeen's My Multi-Ethnic Friends & Other Stories highlights the struggles of immigrant life in a society that talks multiculturalism but doesn't always walk it. The characters straddle many worlds and tend to feel comfortable in none -- all overlaid with a healthy dose of humour, satire and subtle insights.
