    Open your mind!

    This is a book I feel you must read in one or two sittings. One you must finish right away. A story within stories. After reading this the title will haunt me...disgust me. This is a story that obviously won't appeal to everyone. You can see that in the reviews of this book. All I can say is if you liked BREATH, EYES, MEMORY as I did, I think you'd like this. You also learn a little from this book. First you'll learn what a DEW BREAKER is and a little about Haiti. Open your mind and take this trip.

    Melancholy Melange

    Edwige Danticat offers us several short stories about the Dulavier era of Haiti. In her almost prosaic prose Danticat give us true horror stories and the monsters are human. Each story can stand alone but it is connected to the others through characters who are the victims of a brutal regime. Even the perpetrators are given sympathetic reality, which makes the reader wonder about the human condition. This is not a book I would read again, only because the subject is so painful and melancholy, but Danticat manages to find beauty through her writing about the most horrible events. ¿ Leslie Strang Akers
