A collection of short stories taking a whimsical look at life within the extended black Jamaican family in Britain. The name of the book is derived from the savings club referred to as ‘pardner’, which is a connecting thread within the lives of Jamaicans past and present. Written in English with Jamaican patois dialogue, Deanne Heron’s stories capture the unique Jamaican sense of humour and cover subjects as diverse as family holidays and funerals.

This second volume of Pardner Money Stories is a follow-up to the first volume (Hansib, 2010) of hilarious short stories which featured Kelly and her eccentric extended Jamaican family living in the north of England. In this edition, the reader is presented with the latest rib-splitting antics of Grandma Mala, Cousin Babsie and husband Ferdie, Lolly and Uncle Al, as they try to navigate and make sense of their world: a little piece of Jamaica in England.
