Elizabeth Nunez discusses Oh Gad! on NPR

“It’s a very contemporary novel, and it deals with a very contemporary issue in the Caribbean, which is that the economy is based on tourism. To what extent do you compromise your country to let tourism flourish? And so what’s at the heart of this novel is the tension between the land developers, the ones who want to put up the big hotels, the big condos for the tourists and basically saying to the people, ‘If we do this, you will get money,’ and to those who have farmed the land for a long time. There’s a sacredness of the land.” – Elizabeth Nunez on NPR, listen and read the entire discussion
