Greetings From Jamaica, Wish You Were Queer by Mari SanGiovanni!


Author, Mari SanGiovanni

If you don’t mind laughing out loud at the beach on your next vacation, pick up a copy of GREETINGS FROM JAMAICA, WISH YOU WERE QUEER by Mari SanGiovanni.


The Advocate: “A breezy romp!” “Damn if I didn’t actually laugh out loud while reading it — several times, in fact. I hate it when the anonymous book blurb writers are right!”


Marie Santora has a few secrets her wacky Italian family may not let her keep. After Marie comes into a windfall of cash, she surprises the whole clan with a trip to Jamaica where the family collides in a hilarious Caribbean romp filled with lies, lesbians, siblings, Sicilians, and celebrity stalkers… money, mothers, and wayward meatballs all uniting to make a peaceful vacation anything but that! Marie learns the amount of money she needs to live comfortably is directly related to her relatives; if they don’t get enough of her money; she won’t live comfortably. Is it possible to find and keep the love of your life while on vacation with your entire family? The island of Jamaica just may not be big enough…

Greetings From Jamaica, Wish You Were Queer is published by Bywater Books and was nominated for two LAMBDA awards and a Golden Crown Finalist. The screenplay was a top 10 finalist in the New Hampshire Film Festival in 2010.

The long awaited sequel to Greetings From Jamaica, CAMPTOWN LADIES, will be released in October 2011 in Women’s Week in Provincetown.

    This book was awesome I loved it. Laugh out loud is correct they hit the nail on the head right there. Marie Santora is like so many of us that gets herself in some very awkward situations. This book is fantastic and I highly recommend it. I cannot wait for Camptown Ladies.
