Una Mulzac wanted to make a career for herself in the literary world. It was the early 1960s, and the most common way of breaking into publishing was to secure an entry-level position at a major press in Manhattan. Mulzac found work at Random House as a secretary—but within a few years she became bored with her desk job. Instead of looking for a position with another publisher in New York, Mulzac emigrated to British Guiana, in early 1963. There, she joined the People’s Progressive Party (PPP), an anti-colonial group pushing for Guyanese independence led by Cheddi Jagan, an American-educated, ethnic Indian Marxist who served for three years as the colony’s Premier.
