Join WordSpace for a discussion of Nicole Dennis-Benn‘s newest book, Here Comes The Sun. We’re teaming up with Deep Vellum Books in January to highlight one of the New York Times‘ Best Books of 2016 and will discuss the text with award-winning debut author Sanderia Faye.

Praise for Here Comes the Sun:

“… [it] stuns at every turn, especially when you think you have it figured out. It’s about women pushed to the edge, Jamaica in all its beauty and fury, and, more than anything else, a story that was just waiting to be told.” (Marlon James)

“…a brilliant, gut-punch of a debut novel. Set on the white sand beaches, resorts and shacks of Jamaica, Nicole Dennis-Benn tells the story of four Jamaican women as they struggle to find their independence amidst the sprawling resorts that both provide and threaten their livelihood.” (Amazon)

Sun makes for an emotionally devastating read, but Dennis-Benn nurtures her rocky terrain with generous amounts of love and compassion.” (Chris Vognar, The Dallas Morning News)
