    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.

    It is 1937, a dangerous year in the Dominican Republic, where Haitian laborers are useful, rather than welcome; tolerated, but not trusted. Amabelle, a young Haitian woman orphaned at the age of eight, is a faithful servant to the young wife of an army colonel, living in the household where the two women grew up together. Amabelle's lover Sebastien is an itinerant sugarcane cutter, a handsome man despite the scars on his face, the calluses on his hands.There are rumors that in other towns Haitians are being persecuted, even killed, but there are always rumors. Amabelle longs to become Sebastien's wife, to return with him to Haiti at the end of the cane season and begin a new life. Instead, the nationalist madness erupts, and terror engulfs them.A devastating and beautiful novel The Farming of Bones is about love, dignity, pain, and memory, and about that most basic of hopes when all other hope is lost: to endure.
