About This Item

New York. 1995. Soho Press. 1st American Edition. Very Good in Dustjacket. 1569470251. 227 pages. hardcover. Cover by Konbit Kreyol. keywords: Literature Black Women Caribbean America Haiti. FROM THE PUBLISHER - When Haitians tell a story, they say ‘Krik?' and the eager listeners answer ‘Krak!' In Krik? Krak! In her second novel, Edwidge Danticat establishes herself as the latest heir to that narrative tradition with nine stories that encompass both the cruelties and the high ideals of Haitian life. They tell of women who continue loving behind prison walls and in the face of unfathomable loss; of a people who resist the brutality of their rulers through the powers of imagination. The result is a collection that outrages, saddens, and transports the reader with its sheer beauty. Since the publication of her debut work Breath, Eyes, Memory in 1994, Edwidge Danticat has won praise as one of America's brightest, most graceful and vibrant young writers. In this novel, and in her National Book Award-nominated collection of stories, Krik? Krak!, Danticat evokes the powerful imagination and rich narrative tradition of her native Haiti, and in the process records the suffering, triumphs, and wisdom of its people. Author Paule Marshall has said of Danticat, ‘A silenced Haiti has once again found its literary voice.' inventory #34525 ISBN: 1569470251.
