Vale of Tears - Haitian Book Centre - Haitian Books in Creole, English and French, francophone litterature - Cliquer pour agrandir Translated by Dolores A. Schaefer, foreword by Edwidge Danticat
============================
Vale of Tears is a stark, meditative, and vivid exploration of Coralie Santeuilís life through a series of flashbacks she has on New Yearís eve as she makes fourteen stops while walking from one end of the busy city of Port-au-Prince to the other in a last quest to save her life and retain her dignity.

Although the novel is set in the period around the Second World War, it is in many ways a book about contemporary Haiti. We pause to wonder what happens to the privileged when their world disintegrates. We contemplate the survival skills of the poor. Vale of Tears offers a critical reading of the class system and corruption which plague the country.

Paulette Poujol Oriolís unmatched psychological renditions, her extraordinary story-telling talent and masterful prose beguile and outrage, enchant and enrapture all at once.
