Patsy, Hardback Book

Description

From award-winning novelist Nicole Dennis-Benn comes this beautifully layered portrait of motherhood, immigration and sacrificeA TIME MAGAZINE 'MUST READ BOOK OF 2019'For Patsy, a visa to America is her ticket to freedom, a passport to the 'land of opportunity'.

She yearns to be reunited with Cicely, her oldest friend and secret lover, but her plans do not include her religious mother or even her young daughter, Tru.

As Patsy struggles to survive as an undocumented migrant, Tru grapples with her own questions of identity and sexuality.

Can she ever understand, or even forgive, her mother's decision to leave?

Dancing between the jittery streets of New York and the languid rhythms of Jamaica, Patsy is the story of what it means to be a mother, a daughter, a woman and, ultimately, a survivor.

A passionate, moving and fiercely urgent novel tracing threads of love that stretch across years and oceans.
