Beautifully-written interconnected short stories. Edwidge Danticat at her finest. I read this on my train journey to and from work in a week, but could easily have read it at home with a cup of tea in an hour.

Read the book. A review rearly comes close to describing the varying emotions in Danticat's "Krik? Krak!". It helps me transend into the backyards of homes in Haiti, as I listen to the conversations of the neighbors. It is so vivid it's sometimes difficult to read many pages in one sitting. You can see the soldiers forcing a son to rape his mother, the remains of a body at the side of the road, or the newly discovered sway of a young black woman after her discovery of her nakedness. This book is a truly great experience.

Edwidge Danticat is a writer to watch. Her prose is elegant, even poetic. Her stories are heart wrenching and gorgeous. She weaves these tales with amazing deft and makes you care about her characters and their lives. The work has the feel of autobiography in its largest and most human sense.
