    Edwidge Danticat's previous novels 'Breath, Eyes, Memory' and 'The Dew Breaker' relied heavily on her experiences as a Haitian-American immigrant and the conflicts of culture she endured. 'Brother, I'm Dying' offers readers her first memoir centered around her secondary father Joseph, a charismatic pastor who raised Edwidge until age twelve, who would endure tragic racial prejudices when he fled Haiti for Miami at age 81. Told with affection and intimacy, Danticat portrays the jumble of emotions she felt when reuniting with her parents in Brooklyn, the unexpected death of Joseph and his brother, and the birth of her son who represents another generation to her family's proud heritage.

    A few years after its liberation from the brutality of French colonial rule in 1803, Haiti endured a period of even greater brutality under the reign of King Henri-Christophe, who was born a slave in Grenada but rose to become the first black king in the Western Hemisphere. In prose of often dreamlike coloration and intensity, Alejo Carpentier records the destruction of the black regime—built on the same corruption and contempt for human life that brought down the French while embodying the same hollow grandeur of false elegance, attained only through slave labor—in an orgy of voodoo, race hatred, madness, and erotomania.
