Our Caribbean Reviewed in Publishers Weekly

Thomas Glave’s collection Our Caribbean: A Gathering of Lesbian and Gay Writing from the Antilles is reviewed in Publishers Weekly. The reviewer says the stories are "sexy" and "often lush." Singled out for praise are "Michelle Cliff’s ‘Ecce Homo,’ a tale of star-crossed male lovers
in Rome during WWII, which has the romantic distance of a sepia
photograph, and José Alcántara Almánzar’s portrayal of a transvestite
in ‘Lulú or the Metamorphosis.’" The reviewer also particularly likes "Shani Mootoo’s sassy patois story, ‘Out on Main Street,’" calling it "refreshingly upbeat."
