Edwidge Danticat

Haitian-American author Edwidge Danticat’s (Breath, Eyes, Memory, Krik? Krak!, The Dew Breaker) latest projects involve a short story recently published in The Washington Post and the film “Stones in the Sun,” about “the invisible wounds of exile.” In the film, Danticat plays a college professor with an activist streak. The film’s full synopsis reads:

A woman struggling to forget the atrocities she has suffered, reunites with her husband. A single mother striving for assimilation in the suburbs takes in her activist sister. And the host of a popular anti-government radio show finds his estranged father on his doorstep.

Set in New York’s Haitian community, “Stones in the Sun” weaves together stories of love and family irridiated by the fallout of political terror.
