From the Publisher
When Haitians tell a story, they say "Krik?" and the eager
listeners answer "Krak!" In Krik? Krak! In her
second novel, Edwidge Danticat establishes herself as the latest
heir to that narrative tradition with nine stories that encompass
both the cruelties and the high ideals of Haitian 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 beauty.
