"Long Memory" traces the 'history' of a multi-racial family from 1492 to the 2000 Millennium. It is set against the backgrounds of Mexico, the Bahamas, America and England. The novel chronicles the five hundred year 'love' commitment of the main characters to a ' love-partnership', a place and a people. Intertwined with the main 'love' theme are several other romantic affairs. In addition to 'telling stories', 'Long Memory' also makes observations on the human condition in contrasting cultures; and gives an unusual 'twist' to the classical microcosm/macrocosm equation. A multitude of characters: Arawak, Aztec, Amerindian, Colonial British, Modern British and Modern Bahamian interact smoothly and sympathetically as their individual histories evolve and interweave. The concept of 'Long Memory' -- a personalization of 'folk memory' - gives continuity to the novel, and provides the 'springboard' for a surprise denouement.
