A Vintage Shorts Travel Selection
Growing up in Haiti, Edwidge Danticat kept well clear of carnivalterrified by the stories of danger and debauchery that her uncle told her. Decades later, a grown woman and accomplished author, she returns home to find out what she's been missing.
In this selection from After the Dance, Danticat fuses her present-day observations with her own childhood memories and weaves a deeply personal reflection on the home she left behind. Through conversations with other attendees and her own deft reporting, she takes readers into the very heart of the festival. A Walk Through Carnival is as much memoir as it is travelogue; and, in these pages, the National Book Critics Circle Award-winning author of Brother, I'm Dying brings the electric spirit of carnival vividly to life.
