Getting Rid of It

By Lindsey Collen

Published Jan 2010

Jumila, Sadna and Goldilox Soo have big plans. Young, poor and female, invisible and powerless, they are sick to death of being the sitting ducks of of history. They want change. But first they have Jumila’s problem to deal with, contained for now in several plastic bags, but threatening to leak out at any moment and send them all to prison.

Weaving together old Mauritian myths, fairy stories and the absurdities of real life, Lindsey Collen deals with the issues of women’s lives with astonishing honesty and directness. She has created an uplifting story that is both poignantly funny and genuinely moving.
