I picked this up after reading Julia Alvarez's excellent "In the Time of the Butterflies," which is about life in the Dominican Republic under the brutal (and quietly U.S.-supported) Rafael Trujillo. Danticant Is a Haitian author and this story is set during the Trujillo ordered massacre of 1,000s of Haitians, often called the "Parsley" Massacre. Also, see "Feast of the Goat" and "The Autumn of the Patriarch."
