Dulcinea Evers, a young Jamaican artist who has reinvented herself in the USA as the flamboyant Cinea Verse, dies in unclear circumstances. But who was Dulcinea? Her friend, Cheryl, who is carrying her ashes back to New York from her Jamaican funeral, has one story, but the narratives of the other people in Dulci’s life suggest that not even Cheryl’s version is the whole one.

Alecia McKenzie’s Sweetheart won the 2012 Commonwealth Book Prize Caribbean region.

Dulcinea Evers, une jeune artiste jamaïcaine qui s'est réinventée en Amérique comme l'artiste flamboyante Cinea Verse, meurt dans des circonstances qui vont se révéler aussi mystérieuses que sa courte vie.  Son amie Cheryl, qui rapporte ses cendres à New York après les funérailles en Jamaïque, aura le choc

découvrir que l'idée qu'elle s'était faite de sa copine "Dulci" est bien différente de celles d'autres qui ont connu la jeune disparue....
