Nicole Dennis-Benn: Patsy

View descriptionShare

From the award-winning novelist Nicole Dennis-Benn, Patsy is the brave and stirring saga of a Jamaican woman who upends her life for a new start in America, leaving her young child behind. Fellow author Alexander Chee calls Pasty a “stunningly powerful intergenerational novel about the price – the ransom really – women must pay to choose themselves, their lives, their value, their humanity”. Nicole joins Santilla Chingaipe to discuss her portrait of a queer black woman grasping for self-determination. A passionate and fiercely urgent story, Paty traces the silent threads of love that stretch across years and oceans.
