Book Description Farrar Straus Giroux, 1970. hardcover. 1st edition. New York. 1970. Farrar Straus Giroux. 1st American Edition. Very Good In Dustjacket That Has Some Slight Water-Staining To The Inside Bottom Rear Flap. ISBN:. Introduction by Edmund Wilson. Translated from the Haitian French by Eva Thoby-Marcelin. 179 pages. hardcover. Jacket design by Catherine Smolich. FROM THE PUBLISHER - Although ALL MEN ARE MAD is the fourth novel by the Marcelin brothers to be published in English, these Haitian writers have yet to receive the recognition they deserve. As early as 1949 Edmund Wilson wrote that ‘These books of the Marcelins are distinguished performances. They deal with difficult subjects - material that is controversial in Haiti and unfamiliar abroad; and presenting them, without sentimentality or by political melodrama and with no explicit comment, they bring out in them a human poignancy that is communicated to readers anywhere.’ ALL MEN ARE MAD, although fiction, is based on an episode in recent Haitian history. In 1942, during the regime of President Elie Lescot, the Catholic Church attempted to abolish vodou, the native religion that had merged several Catholic saints into its original pantheon of African spirits. The result, as depicted by the Marcelins, was a disaster for both sides. In his introduction Wilson writes: ‘The special plight of the Haitians is made to extend a perspective to the miseries and futilities of the whole human race, to our bitter ‘ideological’ conflicts and our apparently pointless ambitions. ALL MEN ARE MAD is a very entertaining but also troubling book, and it is a most distinguished work of literature.’.
