PARADISE is structured around eight chapters, each bearing a woman's name. Each adding a differnt point of view to the narrative. It's set in ruby. A fictitious black town founded by proud. Racially pure men who emerged from the fight against slavery only to find there was yet another hierarchy - this time based on gradations of skin colour - to keep them down. Yet the myth of Ruby's own racial genealogy, its piety and self-righteousness is fragile, and the women who skirt the town's boundaries, preferring to take refuge in their own company threaten to blow it apart.
