Product Details

Praise

“A book about choosing to live and not to die, to fight, to survive, to thrive.”
—Edwidge Danticat

“Nothing is more eloquent than the voice of those who endure and try valiantly to survive.”
—Noam Chomsky

Lavil brings to the fore the voices of the people of the wounded city of Port-au-Prince … these stories are redolent of both pride and fears of an uncertain future.”
—Paul Farmer, author, Haiti After the Earthquake

Lavil is a powerful collection of testimonies, which include tales of violence, poverty, and instability but also joy, hustle, and the indomitable will to survive.”
Vice

“Lavil is not just a recitation of complaint and tragedy, though those are certainly included within it. It provides, instead, a chorus of stubborn and lively persistence—of a kind one can usually only imagine.”
—Amy Wilentz, Los Angeles Review of Books
