Product Description

Review

Praise for "The Butterfly s Way"
A volume that movingly describes the various facets of the Haitian migration experience . . . "The Butterfly s Way" is the story of a people in transition, struggling to find a comfort zone between their land of origin and their land(s) of resettlement. It provides powerful images of the inner souls of displaced persons, living between two worlds and carrying a heavy baggage of things past.
"Afro-Hispanic Review
" An assembly of writings by writers of Haitian descent the first of its kind . . . An astonishing, stirring addition not only to the heretofore thin canon of Haitian-American literature, but to American literature. Period.
"Research in African Literatures"
Varied, colorful, and interesting . . . Whether [the writers] are discussing childhood memories, interracial relationships, or returning home, their comments are always illuminating.
"Library Journal"
A potent and piercing collection of essays and poems that articulate the frustrations and sorrows of Haitians who are now outsiders both in Haiti and in their places of refuge. "Booklist""
