featuring Petal Samuel, Assistant Professor of African, African American, and Diaspora Studies


A New York Times Notable Book of the Year and Winner of the LAMBDA Literary Award

A lithe, artfully-plotted debut, Here Comes the Sun is deceptively well-constructed, with slow and painful reveals right through the end.The New York Times

Impossible to forget, Dennis-Benn’s writing is as lush as the island itself….She knows how to make the women so complex that we believe every hairpin turn of her plot.The Boston Globe

Here are visceral, profound writing and invigorating characters. Here, too, is the deep and specific sensation of experience….Haunting and superbly crafted, this is a magical book from a writer of immense talent and intelligence.—Kirkus Reviews

—From a much-heralded new writer, Here Comes the Sun offers a dramatic glimpse into a vibrant, passionate world most outsiders see simply as paradise.—W.W. Norton Publishing

One of the most stunningly beautiful novels in recent years…it feels like a miracle.—
