This interview and reading by Edwidge Danticat was posted in the NPR website by Jeffrey Brown.
“Claire of the Sea Light” is a story of death and loss, but also the enduring power of love. The intertwined lives in a small fishing village are upended when a seven-year-old girl disappears. Haitian-born novelist Edwidge Danticat has returned with her first novel in a decade and her first work of fiction about her native country since the 2010 earthquake there.
Danticat is the author of “Krik? Krak!”, “The Dew Breaker” and “Create Dangerously: The Immigrant Artist at Work,” among others. Danticat joined Jeffrey Brown in our studio Tuesday for a conversation about her new work, her writing practice and Haiti.
