“[Pepperpot] leaps headfirst into audacious narrative water, sustaining a diversity in storytelling that’s indicative of the panoply of ways to love, sin, and write about it, in these our unpredictable, conjoined societies.” 

Caribbean Beat 

“The diverse textures of the stories … weave a tapestry of the islands, water, sand, ocean breeze, and rum. Vivid settings serve as backdrops for a dazzling display of personalities.” 

Booklist  

“If you want a masterclass in how to start your stories with a bang, this is the book for you … This is an exciting and heartening book. It proves—if anyone was in any doubt—that the Caribbean has plenty of homegrown literary talent to draw upon.”
