"This is the dense and fascinating tale of a quest that portrays Haiti as both sensual and desperate" La Liberte "A novelist to watch closely" 24 Heures "A novel of exile and crossing ... It is a journey through the multi-layered reality of Haiti." La Gruyere "This is poetic understatement in the face of horror. Not a single sentence leaves you feeling indifferent."
