Sing, and Don’t Cry is Cate Kennedy’ s sensual and touching evocation of her time spent working as a volunteer in small town Mexico. The people in Tequisquiapan she comes to love, and their gusto for celebration, pilgrimage and family, force her to cast a penetrating light on her own Western values and ways. ‘What is truly essential, and who is truly poor?’ asks Kennedy in a book that also challenges the reader to care more for his or her world. Described as ‘a travel book with a social conscience’ this essential memoir, from the award–winning fiction writer and poet, is funny, warm, yet ultimately disarming.
