Wendell Rodricks’ latest book Poskem: Goans in the Shadows, will be released on July 12, 2017.
The book tackles the ticklish subject of the “adopted children” who, with few exceptions, were taken into wealthy families but made to work as servants for the family that adopted them.
In a narrative that spans Portuguese Goa to post-Liberation Goa, Poskem: Goans in the Shadows takes the reader to locales from Bombay to Lyon, Pune to Paris and into the world of the Poskem and Goan recipes. Through happiness and hope, despair and delusion, Wendell Rodricks writes of an unspoken, unheard of and shamefully silenced world of the last generation of a people that would soon be forgotten but for this book preserving their story for posterity.
The book can be pre-ordered on Amazon.in Meanwhile have a look at a Succorine video by comedienne Wendy Zuzarte, plugging the book with a comedy bit about a poskem Succorine Bai knew personally.
