Description
Winner of the National Book Critics Circle Award for Autobiography, this is a brilliant writer's account of a long, painful, ecstatic--and unreciprocated--affair with a country that has long fascinated the world.
A foreign correspondent on a simple story becomes, over time and in the pages of this book, a lover of Haiti, pursuing the heart of this beautiful and confounding land into its darkest corners and brightest clearings. "Farewell, Fred Voodoo" is a journey into the depths of the human soul as well as a vivid portrayal of the nation's extraordinary people and their uncanny resilience. Haiti has found in Amy Wilentz an author of astonishing wit, sympathy, and eloquence.
