Edwidge Danticat Ï 6 REVIEW

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 beau. I remember when I was in high school Edwidge Danticat was one of the new rising literary stars who was getting a lot of attention It's nice to come back to this collection of short stories and realize that it was completely justified Krik Krak is that rare collection which feels like a novel in its own right each story is not only a perfect gem on its own but connects thematically to the rest of the stories to create a greater whole The stories are linked by a network of metaphors an grounded in two geographic locations Ville Rose in Haiti and New York in AmericaSome stories focus on figures who are sickeningly familiar in their rages and frustrations in the midst of violence and poverty These stories tend to work with less conventional storytelling techniues which help keep the tension alive in the story Other stories are gloriously original and offer voices that are perhaps finding their way into print for the first time ever Throughout the collection Haitian culture is the centerpiece with stories that focus on intracultural relations as well as those that investigate how Haitian perspectives interact with European or American ones
