Publisher Description

[A] lithe, artfully-plotted debut....Margot is one of the reasons to read this book. She is a startling, deeply memorable character. All of Ms. Dennis-Benn’s women are. The author has a gift for creating chiaroscuro portraits, capturing both light and dark....Here Comes the Sun is deceptively well-constructed, with slow and painful reveals right through the end.

Loudly Crying Face“One of the best books I have read this year. The author does a great job of describing the complex experiences of poverty, sexual orientation, family dynamics, and dreams of each of the characters. I’m a little disappointed by the ending, it feels abrupt and doesn’t answer the questions brought up within the story. I would still recommend this read to anybody wanting to learn the loved experiences of lgbtq people of color in the Caribbean, especially the experiences of those that are believed to live in “paradise”.”
