Praise

“Jean-Euphèle Milcé lives in Port-au-Prince and has, it seems, survived the catastrophe. His novel Alphabet of the Night (Pushkin Press) captures the blended sensuality and sorrow of that accursed city.” – Boyd Tonkin, Independent

“Christopher Moncrieff’s fine translation effectively conveys this book’s heady, poetic style. Jean-Euphèle Milcé … his powerful and affecting first novel paints a terrifying picture of a society spiralling inexorably downwards.” - Chris Schuler, Independent

“Milcé … has a style detached enough for clarity, but sufficiently angry to give his narrator a passionate driving force.” – Nora Mahomy, Times Literary Supplement

“This is the understatement of poetry against horror. Not a single sentence leaves you feeling indifferent.” – Bertil Galland, L’Arpenteur
