This file contains various copies of Barbara's Gennis, a piece of prose fiction about a young man named Taiyot and the journey he goes on following the death of his mother.

Second Draft

This draft copy is annotated by Barbara. Includes notes for revisions to be made on the next draft.

Third Draft

This copy of Gennis seems to have taken on board the revisions noted on the second draft. It is otherwise unlabelled, so whether it was the final draft is unknown.

Pages 1-45

These pages do not consitute a full copy of Gennis as the final two pages are missing. The content of the pages corresponds with that of the Third Draft rather than that of the Second Draft.

The Threshing Floor

This is a draft copy of "The Threshing Floor", a piece of prose fiction about a woman coming to terms with the recent death of her partner. This copy contains Barbara's annotations and notes for revision.

Miss Jessie

One copy of "Miss Jessie" and some accompanying loose pages. "Miss Jessie" is a short story about the life of a certain Jamaican train station cleaning attendant.

Third Draft

This copy of "Elysian Fields" contains a lot of Barbara's notes and revisions. In this copy the central character of the piece is called Jenner and is male.
