A richly poetic novel by one of Haiti's leading contemporary writers relates the saga of a Haitian family in 1949. Métellus's novel brilliantly conveys the cheerful, generous, yet cynical and violent nature of the islanders, as well as their determination to rise above the intrigues of power and retain their cultural heritage.
