Award winning author

'Engrossing … Dennis-Benn has crafted a passionate, honest portrayal of freedom and motherhood.'
Elle

From award-winning novelist Nicole Dennis-Benn comes this beautifully layered portrait of motherhood, immigration and sacrifice.

Patsy yearns to escape the beautiful but impoverished Jamaican town where she was raised for a new life in New York and the chance to start afresh. Above all, she hopes to be reunited with her oldest friend, Cicely and to rekindle their young love. But spreading her wings will come at a price – she must leave her five-year-old daughter, Tru, behind. And Patsy is soon confronted by the stark reality of life as an undocumented migrant in a hostile city. Expertly evoking the jittery streets of New York and the languid rhythms and lilting patois of Jamaica, Patsy weaves between the lives of Patsy and Tru as mother and daughter ultimately find a way back to one another. Daring, tender and profound, this is the story of one woman's fight to discover her sense of self in a world that tries to define her and of the lasting threads of love stretching across years and oceans.

'In her new novel, Patsy, the writer tells an immigration story that defies conventions of motherhood and sexuality.'
New York Times

'Passionate and urgent, Patsy explores what happens when a woman chooses herself over all else.'
Harper's Bazaar
