Product Details


“Remarkable. . . . A fierce, haunting book about exile and loss and family love.” —The New York Times

“With a storyteller’s magnetic force . . . [Danticat] gives voice to an attachment too deep for words.” —O, The Oprah Magazine

“Powerful. . . . Danticat employs the charms of a storyteller and the authority of a witness to evoke the political forces and personal sacrifices behind her parents’ journey to this country and her uncle’s decision to stay behind.” —The Washington Post Book World

“Heartwrenching, intimate. . . . Through the seemingly effortless grace of Danticat’s words, a family’s tragedy is transformed into a promise of collective hope.” —San Francisco Chronicle

“Her power of language is so great, and at the same time, so subtle, that even those that cannot see her or understand her stories will be transformed by her impact on their world.” —Walter Mosley
