Nota do editor

Reese’s book club…

“Everything Inside” by Edwidge Danticat was the August 2020 pick for Reese Witherspoon’s book club. “It’s a collection of eight beautiful stories shaped by different Haitian women’s experience with love and loss. … It’s such an empowering read that taught me a lot about intricacies of Haitian culture,” Witherspoon wrote on the club’s website.

Descrição

From the internationally acclaimed, best-selling author of Brother, I'm Dying, a collection of vividly imagined stories about community, family, and love.

Rich with hard-won wisdom and humanity, set in locales from Miami and Port-au-Prince to a small unnamed country in the Caribbean and beyond, Everything Inside is at once wide in scope and intimate, as it explores the forces that pull us together, or drive us apart, sometimes in the same searing instant.

In these eight powerful, emotionally absorbing stories, a romance unexpectedly sparks between two wounded friends; a marriage ends for what seem like noble reasons, but with irreparable consequences; a young woman holds on to an impossible dream even as she fights for her survival; two lovers reunite after unimaginable tragedy, both for their country and in their lives; a baby's christening brings three generations of a family to a precarious dance between old and new; a man falls to his death in slow motion, reliving the defining moments of the life he is about to lose.

This is the indelible work of a keen observer of the human heart — a master at her best.

    A Stirring drama. Its an interesting read and incorporates Haitian culture and the human experience within the short stories. This book won't necessarily be for everyone, somber and moving
