It’s Always Sunrise Somewhere and Other Stories is the author’s second publication. This anticipated book will reveal more of his talent. It’s a collection of short fictional stories that are imbued with Caribbean flare and with a wide range of topics (i.e. love and lost, 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 a reoccurring theme permeating throughout all of the relatively interconnected stories. In " 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 rendering a macabre dance of love & obsession ; the semi-auto biographical "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"; experience the pungent punch of racism in "The Whistler's Song" or a controversial re-imagining of a ubiquitous bible tale in "Nemesis"; a bildungsroman and coming out story in "Sultry Boy"; a tortured love story between a hefty middle aged island gal & a married white businessman in the midst of a midlife crisis in "Cri De Coeur/Cry of the Heart" and hope & inspiration rises on the horizon in the title piece "It's Always Sunrise Somewhere."
