    " Short stories. Prob. deserves more stars but I was a bit lazy while reading...maybe I don't like too mnay short stories in one collection. "

    " There were some absolutely amazing stories in this book - and some that I didn't care for at all. Overall a fascinating (but of course dark) look at Haiti. "

    " My story in here is "The Harem". I think this anthology will be groundbreaking. "Noir" fictio--crime/mystery fiction set in Haiti. "

    " A very interesting and exciting group of short stories. I liked it very much. "

    " not bad - some good yarns but also some not very good ones...... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lisa | 9/20/2012

    " Read Claire of the Sea Light...a very beautiful story of a father and a daughter. "

    " Well-written and jarring. I won't read noir anymore because it's not my thing and creeps me out too much, but I certainly learned more about Haitian culture than my parents even told me about. It's going to spark some interesting conversation between me and my mother. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lhymowitz | 8/15/2012

    " Great stories from a variety of writers about Haiti. Several stories were so good that I had to pause before I moved on to the next one. I would strongly recommend this collection. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michael | 4/3/2012

    " Short stories by contemporary Haitian writers that together create a nuanced and complex view of Haiti and its people. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rathi | 10/26/2011

    " While some of the stories were very good, a few were just average. Still, it was something different from what I am used to reading! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Julie | 10/20/2011

    " Beautiful, but very depressing. Poverty, corruption. The last story about the U.S. dumping toxic waste is probably the worst though. "
