Get Swept Away

Haiti Noir is a great collection of stories edited by Award-winning author Edwidge Danticat. Haiti’s mixture of extremes, rich history, and raw beauty make it a perfect setting for Noir. The word Noir has more than one meaning and its use here lends multiple layers of history, symbolism, and connotation. The stories are very dark and very well-written. Haiti Noir presents the reader with an opportunity to learn and to be swept far away into the darkness.
