B.G. is British Guiana; Bhagee is a fiery local stew.
Philippa was the second daughter in a family of six children growing up in mid-20th century in colonial Guyana.
She recounts her Sisyphean trials growing up a Carrington in Lot 10, First Street, Georgetown -- from the women's battles to the neighbours that never wore clothes to the relatives who walked with their shoes in their hands.
