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
