God Loves Haiti
A NovelBook - 2015 | First edition.
A native of Haiti, Dimitry Elias L#65533;ger makes his remarkable debut with this story of romance, politics, and religion that traces the fates of three lovers in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, and the challenges they face readjusting to life after an earthquake devastates their city.
Reflecting the chaos of disaster and its aftermath, God Loves Haiti switches between time periods and locations, yet always moves closer to solving the driving mystery at its center: Will the artist Natasha Robert reunite with her one true love, the injured Alain Destin#65533;, and live happily ever after? Warm and constantly surprising, told in the incandescent style of Jos#65533; Saramago and Roberto Bola#65533;o, and reminiscent of Gabriel Garc#65533;a M#65533;rquez's hauntingly beautiful Love in The Time of Cholera, God Loves Haiti is an homage to a lost time and city, and the people who embody it.
