Description - Moonbath by Yanick Lahens

Awarded the Prix Femina in 2014, a prestigious annual French literary prize chosen by an all-female jury of 22 writers from the magazine Femina (they don't just pick women authors to win).A rare example of a work of Haitian literature published in the US, this is a PERFECT starting point for anyone curious about where to start in reading not just Haitian literature, but all Caribbean literature (from Junot Diaz to Gabriel Garcia Marquez).An important glimpse into the lives of the voiceless living in Haiti: especially lowerclass women.Relevant to the feminist landscape of today, giving voices to those women who suffered through invisibility.
