In anticipation of the 35th anniversary of Miami Book Fair International, I had the pleasure to sit for this interview.
In my debut novel, Exclusively Yours (March 2018), I adopted a mixed salad approach to diversity. My heroine, Leila, is Afro-Caribbean; Brie, her protégé is African- American; and Sofia, her best friend, is Latina. Leila’s love interest, Nicolas, is the child of Canadian snowbirds. I tossed it all in.

In Sylvester's second novel, realism and surrealism occupy the same space- as in life- or life as I understand it, anyway. Everyone Knows You Go Home follows a group of migrants as they make their way from Mexico to the US. Each short chapter reveals a buried memory, the sacrifices they make, and the price they pay for seeking the American dream. Their actions touch generations. Sylvester's spare writing allows emotion to come through unfiltered. Everyone Knows is a satisfying, timely read.I received a free copy for review, but I purchased the audio version to better inhabit the world Sylvester so artfully created.
