Product Description

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.
