Paradise Lies: A Modern Slave Narrative of a Traveling and Dancing Yogini offers a fresh vision of the previously unmapped terra incognita in the cultural landscape of the late 20th and early 21st centuries from a transformative Black Woman's perspective. The lessons of Anna Dunwell's unusually varied life experiences, travels and occupations illuminate the complexities of identity at a time when some think we are now in a "post racial and post feminist" world. Her family's history intertwines with her own life travels as she rejects slavery, embraces freedom and lets joy fill her.
