Everything Inside
Everything Inside | Edwidge Danticat
2 posts | 4 read | 12 to read
From the best-selling author of Brother, I'm Dying, a long-awaited return to fiction: a gorgeous collection of stories about community, family, and love; about the forces that pull us together or drive us apart--a book rich with vividly imagined characters, hard-won wisdom, and humanity. In these eight stories--some of which have appeared in The New Yorker--by widely acclaimed, prizewinning author Edwidge Danticat, a romance unexpectedly sparks between two wounded friends; a marriage ends for what seems like noble reasons, but leads to irreparable consequences; a young woman holds on to an impossible dream, even as she fights for her life; two lovers reunite after the biggest tragedy in their country and in their lives. Vividly set in places from Miami to Port-au-Prince to a small unnamed country in the Caribbean and beyond, these beautiful and moving stories showcase one of the world's most renowned voices at her absolute best.

Everything Inside | Edwidge Danticat
Pickpick

Wow, wow, wow! 🤯 I knew this was a 5 star collection from the first story. I took a deep breath after the last sentence and reread several passages. Although, not every story was not loveable, they were at least likeable. The final story was gorgeous.

It's been too long since I've read Edwidge Danticat and I'm so happy this book is the first of my return to her writing.
