Announcement! New Book: The Haitian Peasantry through Oral and Written Literature: Roumain, Alexis, Endore, Carpentier and Fountain

Dear readers,

My book, The Haitian Peasantry through Oral and Written Literature: Roumain, Alexis, Endore, Carpentier, and Fountain has just been published with Caribbean Studies Press!!

Book details:
The Haitian peasant has always been the backbone of the Haitian economy and a source of inspiration for writers. Their vital oral tradition informs the literature of and about Haiti, and the peasantry and folk traditions are valorized in the classic and contemporary works discussed in this text.
The Haitian Peasantry in Oral and Written Literature is an ideal introduction to Haitian literature and an excellent companion to reading and study of Roumain’s Gouverneurs de la rosée, Alexis’s Compère général soleil, Endore’s Babouk, Carpentier’s The Kingdom of This World, and Fountain’s contemporary story, “Bouki and the Cocaine.”

The book features a foreword by Martin Munro and is reviewed by Patrick Bellegarde-Smith, two leading scholars in Haitian Studies.
