Edwidge Danticat

In “fiercely beautiful” novels, memoirs, and essay collections brimming with “enchantments and surprises” (Los Angeles Times), Edwidge Danticat bears witness to the complexities of Haitian life in stories of courage, brutality, family, and rebellion. These books include Create Dangerously: The Immigrant Artist at Work; the National Book Award finalist Krik? Krak!; and Brother, I’m Dying, winner of the National Book Critics Circle Award. The MacArthur Fellowship recipient and Pushcart Prize winner’s latest story collection explores the tidal forces of community that ebb and flow within us all.
