Review of Edwidge Danticat's Create Dangerously: The Immigrant Artist a Work (2010)

Edwidge Danticat’s most recent book Create Dangerously:  The Immigrant Artist At Work reminds readers that in addition to her numerous contributions to Haitian literature, Danticat is a meticulous and erudite cultural critic. As with her previous works of non-fiction After the Dance:  A Walk Through Carnival in Jacmel (2002), Brother I’m Dying (2008),  Create Dangerousldisplays Danticat’s penchant for looking backwards and forward exposing lesser known stories of Haitian history and offering new perspectives on ubiquitous historical and literary narratives.  What results is a book that weaves personal stories, political history, national loss, visual art, and literature together in seamless thoughtful patterns.
