Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:

When Haitians tell a story, they say "Krik?" and the eager listeners answer "Krak!" In Krik? Krak! In her second novel, Edwidge Danticat establishes herself as the latest heir to that narrative tradition with nine stories that encompass both the cruelties and the high ideals of Haitian life. They tell of women who continue loving behind prison walls and in the face of unfathomable loss; of a people who resist the brutality of their rulers through the powers of imagination. The result is a collection that outrages, saddens, and transports the reader with its sheer beauty.


Review:

"A writer of moving and lucid prose. She captures the ineradicable damage done by the state-sanctioned terrorists like the Tontons Macoute, and just as incisively she exposes the hidden harm of generations of traditional mores in which women themselves can be instruments of women's oppression."

John Benkman, Newsday (Long Island, N.Y.)

Review:

"Danticat is a writer of considerable talent, and her prose sparkles. Her honesty, coupled with her wit and subtlety, yields powerful stories that remain with us long after we close the book."

San Francisco Chronicle Book Review
