Phenomenal! A book worthy of a standing ovation. I will never forget how this novel made me feel. It's effortlessly beautiful. -- Lizzie Damilola Blackburn, author of Yinka, Where is your Huzband?

Bursting with vivid imagery and a striking voice, The God of Good Looks boldly tackles complex topics and characters with remarkable nuance and grace. Immersive and impossible to put down. -- Shirlene Obuobi, author of On Rotation

"Part ribald farce, part feminist tract, part love letter to an island, The God of Good Looks takes a look at Caribbean island life and culture rarely seen in books, that of its bristling, competitive carnival culture and beauty world. McIvor writes with wit and confidence of a world where female beauty is celebrated and monetized. Her heroine, an outsider tarnished by scandal, navigates both with skill and satire. Every page we wince and smirk. A self-aware, modern, female-centered novel out of Trinidad which breaks new ground." -- Monique Roffey, author of Costa Book of the Year, The Mermaid of Black Conch

"Get ready for a gorgeous literary snapshot of what life is like in twenty-first-century Trinidad without any of the usual tropes. The God of Good Looks paints a vibrant portrait of the contemporary Caribbean as you've never read it before. It's full of characters whose struggles you feel to your bones--and will be rooting for all the way through. Bianca might just be one of my all-time favorite heroines. Mc Ivor's writing is fresh, smart, and packed with razor-sharp social commentary--a perfect blend of page-turning and thought-provoking. I can't recommend this debut enough."
-- Caroline Mackenzie, author of One Year of Ugly
