Description


Edwidge Danticat's short story from "Haiti Noir 2: The Classics," "The Port-au-Prince Marriage Special," was included in "Ms. Magazine"'s Fall 2013 issue.
"A worthy sequel that skillfully uses a popular genre to help us better understand an often frustratingly complex and indecipherable society."
--"Miami Herald"
"There is danger and regret and fear in these stories, as characters try to negotiate a complex and often confounding land."
--"Miami Herald," Feature on "Haiti Noir 2" Miami launch
"This is a great collection of stories set in Haiti."
--Book Nerd
Praise for the original "Haiti Noir"
"Danticat has succeeded in assembling a group portrait of Haitian culture and resilience that is cause for celebration."
--"Publishers Weekly"
"This anthology will give American readers a complex and nuanced portrait of the real Haiti not seen on the evening news and introduce them to some original and wonderful writers."
--"Library Journal"
"While the publisher defines the term 'noir' broadly--requiring sinister tales or crime stories that evoke a strong sense of place and do not have happy endings--the Haiti book offers its own spin with plenty of grisly crime, dire poverty, and references to magic and religion. There is also some tenderness."
--"New York Times"
Classic stories by: Danielle Legros Georges, Jacques Roumain, Ida Faubert, Jacques-Stephen Alexis, Jan J.

The original best-selling "Haiti Noir" comprised all-new stories by today's best Haitian authors. This new volume collects the true classics of Haitian literature--both short stories and excerpts from longer works--and will be an integral piece of understanding how Haitian culture has evolved over the past fifty years. Editor Edwidge Danticat, one of the most respected Haitian writers, has a well-deserved sterling reputation, and here she follows on the success of the original first volume.
