The Art of Death
Writing the Final StoryBook - 2017
"'I have been writing about death for as long as I have been writing.' Danticat's book moves outward from the shock of her mother's cancer diagnosis and sifts through Danticat's writing life and personal history, all the while shifting from examples that range from Gabriel García Márquez's One Hundred Years of Solitude to Toni Morrison's Sula. The narrative, which continually circles the many incarnations of death from individual to large-scale catastrophes, culminates in a prayer in the voice of Danticat's mother."--
