Trinidad-born Justin Peters is a Harvard-educated literature professor whose focus on the works of “Dead White Men” receives little professional respect at the public Brooklyn college where he teaches. But whatever troubles he might have at work are eclipsed when he realizes his wife, Sally, is no longer certain about their life together. Once a poet, now a teacher and nearly forty, Harlem-born Sally wants something more. If Sally and Justin’s union is to survive (along with four-year-old daughter Giselle), both must face the crippling echoes of their own pasts before those memories forever cloud and alter their future.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Elizabeth Nunez reads her own prose. Her colorful West Indies accent overcomes the locale of the book, which is set in Brooklyn…The novel is exquisitely written.”


  • “This is a tender, graceful novel of personal and marital struggle that also explores the power of literature and poetry in everyday life.”


  • “[Nunez] captures the essence of relational ambivalence and poignantly weaves the everyday cadence of work and child-rearing into the struggle for self-actualization…Nunez has…written a deeply felt and compassionate novel. Wise and resonant, it will strike a chord with readers.”

    Library Journal

  • “A perceptive and moving tale of an African American middle-class marriage struggling to right itself amid tremors of self-discovery…Nunez allows the narrative to unfold with understated elegance.”
