Pepperpot: Best New Stories from the Caribbean features outstanding entries from the 2013 Commonwealth Short Story Prize 2013, including the winning story, The Whale House by Sharon Millar.

In The Whale House, a woman recovers from a miscarriage whist wrestling with an old conflict and a long kept secret. Bush medicine, teenage sexuality, and difficult moral choices culminate in this uniquely Trinidadian story one of marriage and the secrets we keep from the ones closest to us.

In A Good Friday by Peepal Tree Press author Barbara Jenkins, a mysterious woman enters a strange bar straight from church one Good Friday, where she meets a smooth operator bent on seduction.
