It’s Always Sunrise Somewhere and Other Stories is a collection of short fictional stories that are imbued with Caribbean flare and a wide range of topics (i.e., finding love and losing it, the immigrant experience, sex, sexuality, oppression, nostalgia, racism, religion, spirituality, psychopathology, coming of age, and poverty). However, humor, pathos, parody, and most importantly, hope and inspiration are recurring themes permeating throughout all the relatively interconnected stories.

In “3 a.m. at the Café,” disparate lives intersect with a prostitute, two closeted gay men, a cheating married man, and a waitress who’s seen it all.

In “The Purloined Heart,” the supernatural, in the form of Haitian Voodoo, render a macabre dance of love and obsession.

In the semi-autobiographical “A Candle for Lina,” a young boy remembers his nanny from childhood in Haiti.

Since all non-native Americans are descendants of immigrants here in the USA, you will most likely identify with the immigrant experience in “The Reason Why Crickets Chirp,” the pungent punch of racism in “The Whistler’s Song,” the controversy in the reimagined ubiquitous Bible tale in “Nemesis,” a Bildungsroman in the coming-out story “Sultry Boy,” the torture in the love story between a hefty middle-aged island gal and a married white businessman in the midst of a midlife crisis in “Cri De Coeur/Cry of the Heart,” and the hope and inspiration that rises in the horizon in the title piece “It’s Always Sunrise Somewhere.”
