Praise for the original Haiti Noir : "Danticat has succeeded in assembling a group portrait of Haitian culture and resilience that is cause for celebration." -- Publishers Weekly "This anthology will give American readers a complex and nuanced portrait of the real Haiti not seen on the evening news and introduce them to some original and wonderful writers." -- Library Journal "While the publisher defines the term 'noir' broadly--requiring sinister tales or crime stories that evoke a strong sense of place and do not have happy endings--the Haiti book offers its own spin with plenty of grisly crime, dire poverty, and references to magic and religion. There is also some tenderness." -- The New York Times Classic stories by: Danielle Legros Georges, Jacques Roumain, Ida Faubert, Jacques-Stephen Alexis, Jan J. Dominique, Paulette Poujol Oriol, Lyonel Trouillot, Emmelie Proph#65533;te, Ben Fountain, Dany Laferri#65533;re, Georges Anglade, Edwidge Danticat, Mich#65533;le Voltaire Marcelin, #65533;zili Dant#65533;, Marie-H#65533;l#65533;ne Laforest, Nick Stone, Maril#65533;ne Phipps-Kettlewell, Myriam J.A. Chancey, and Roxane Gay. The original best-selling Haiti Noir comprised all-new stories by today's best Haitian authors. This new volume collects the true classics of Haitian literature--both short stories and excerpts from longer works--and will be an integral piece of understanding how Haitian culture has evolved over the past fifty years. Editor Edwidge Danticat, one of the most respected Haitian writers, has a well-deserved sterling reputation, and here she follows on the success of the original first volume. Edwidge Danticat was born in Haiti and moved to the United States when she was twelve. She is the editor of Haiti Noir and author of several books, including Breath, Eyes, Memory , an Oprah Book Club selection; Krik? Krak! , a National Book Award finalist; The Farming of Bones , an American Book Award winner; and the novel-in-stories The Dew Breaker . She lives in Miami, Florida.
