Sing, and Don't Cry: A Mexican Journal/Kennedy, Cate/Paper/0975022814/S053-D1
Transit Lounge Press
"If you're sick of being eaten to death by little stories about interest rates, then Cate Kennedy's big story of working as an Australian volunteer in a credit cooperative in Mexico is the solution. This tale of cross cultural discovery is wide-eyed and funny, unflinching and alive. It says a lot about Mexico but even more about Australia." - Michael McGirr, author of Bypass.
For Australian author Cate Kennedy the dice rolls and she finds herself in small town Mexico. So begins a compelling journey where her life becomes inextricably intertwined with those of Mexican farmers and their families. From a hilarious evening at a disco, to a fifteenth birthday party where dancing to the Bee Gees is mandatory, to a joyous wedding reception in a hot dust backyard and quiet moments of hardship, grief and loss, the Mexican gusto for celebration, pilgrimage and family challenges her to confront the big issues of life. Vividly evoked and beautifully written Sing, and Don't Cry is funny, warm, yet ultimately disarming.
