We meet him late in life: a quiet man, a good father and
husband, a fixture in his Brooklyn neighborhood, a landlord
and barber with a terrifying scar across his face. As the
book unfolds, moving seamlessly between Haiti in the 1960s
and New York City today, we enter the lives of those around
him, and learn that he has also kept a vital, dangerous
secret. Edwidge Danticatâ€™s brilliant exploration of the â€śdew
breakerâ€ť--or torturer--s an unforgettable story of love,
remorse, and hope; of personal and political rebellions; and
of the compromises we make to move beyond the most intimate
brushes with history. It firmly establishes her as one of
Americaâ€™s most essential writers.
