As I came of age as a young woman and entered fully into the world of men and dating and sexuality I often wondered where the book was that would show me young educated Jamaican women trying to navigate this terrain. Until Sharon Leach’s Love It When you Come, Hate It When You Go I did not see these women at all in our literature. Sharon Leach occupies a unique position in Jamaican literature in telling the stories of mainly professional women living in townhouses and apartments in Kingston and trying to understand their place in a rapidly changing world. I read Sharon’s stories to see the predicament of women I know intimately.
