Introduction by Edwidge Danticat
===============================

In Love, three sisters entangle themselves in each otherís love lives, creating a complicated family dynamic that echoes the growing chaos outside of the house. In Anger, the daughter of a middle-class family terrorized by paramilitaries agrees to prostitute herself to save the others, but the guilt that ensues upon the sale of her body and soul reveals the profound fissures among them. And finally, Madness paints a terrifying portrait of a Haitian town that has been ravaged by troops. A young poet, trapped in his house for days without food, becomes obsessed with the souls of the dead that surround him. Love, Anger, Madness is an extraordinary, brave, and searing evocation of a country in turmoil.
