Create Dangerously: The Immigrant Artist at Work | [Edwidge Danticat]

Create Dangerously: The Immigrant Artist at Work

In this deeply personal book, the celebrated Haitian-American writer Edwidge Danticat reflects on art and exile. Inspired by Albert Camus and adapted from her own lectures for Princeton University’s Toni Morrison Lecture Series, here Danticat tells stories of artists who create despite (or because of) the horrors that drove them from their homelands. Combining memoir and essay, these moving and eloquent pieces examine what it means to be an artist from a country in crisis.

    "The Narrator Does Not Do This Justice"
    What did you love best about Create Dangerously?

    Really beautiful essays. Danticat is a wonderful author.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Kristin Kalbli’s performances?

    No! She reads every sentence with the exact same intonation and lilt in her voice, she sounds like a machine, like Siri.

    Story
    "Painful audio, disservice to story"
    Would you listen to Create Dangerously again? Why?

    Definitely, I would listen to it if someone else read it. I enjoy Danticat's work, but listening to this reader is like listening to the computer voice on my GPS read a story (sorry Ms. Kalbli).


    What did you like best about this story?

    The story itself and Danticat's manner of telling it.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Kristin Kalbli’s performances?

    No. I'm sorry, it's like listening to my GPS read me a story. Too little variation in tone for such an important story.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No. I like to listen in 1 hour segments.


    Any additional comments?

    I feel badly for the reader of the story, but after several listening attempts, the reader's voice was so monotone I actually had to turn my iPod off as I couldn't stand the reading voice.
