"After trying to help Benjamin Pearl, an undernourished, nearly feral eleven-year-old boy living in the Montana wilderness, social worker Pete Snow comes face-to-face with the boy's profoundly disturbed father, Jeremiah. With courage and caution, Pete slowly earns a measure of trust from this paranoid survivalist itching for a final conflict that will signal the coming End Times. But as Pete's own family spins out of control, Pearl's activities spark the full-blown interest of the FBI, putting Pete at the center of a massive manhunt from which no one will emerge unscathed. In this shattering and iconic American novel, Smith Henderson explores the complexities of freedom, community, grace, suspicion, and anarchy, brilliantly depicting our nation's disquieting and violent contradictions" -- from publisher's web site.
"Alternately chilling, funny, devastating, and hopeful, these 17 stories introduce us to a theater critic who winds up in a hot tub with the actress he routinely savages in reviews; a biographer who struggles to discover why a novelist stopped writing; a student who contends with her predatory professor; and the startling scenario of the last satyr meeting his last woman."--Publisher's description.
"This is prose and verse that moves deftly between girlhood memories of growing up as a Haitian immigrant in the suburbs of Boston, to bearing witness to brutality and catastrophe, to intellectual, playful explorations of pop culture enigmas like Michael Jackson and Jean Michel Basquiat. Lenelle Moise is at home everywhere and bears witness to all, be it the presence of a skinhead on the subway, a newspaper account of unthinkable atrocity, or the "noose loosened to necklace" of desire. The cut of Haiti Glass lays bare a world of resistance and survival, mourning and lust, poverty, triumph, and prayer. Lenelle Moise is an award-winning poet, playwright, essayist, and nationally touring performance artist who creates jazz-infused, hip-hop bred, politicized texts about Haitian American identity, creative resistance, and the intersection of race, class, gender, sexuality, memory, and spirit. Her poems and essays are featured in several anthologies, including Word Warriors: 35 Women Leaders in the Spoken Word Revolution and We Don't Need Another Wave: Dispatches from the Next Generation of Feminists. Her writing has also been published in the Utne Reader, Make/Shift Magazine, Left Turn, and numerous other magazines and journals. She currently lives in Northampton, Massachusetts, where she was the 2010-2012 Poet Laureate. While her screenplays and plays have been published to acclaim, this is her long-awaited first book of poetry. Praise for Haiti Glass: "Haiti Glass is a magnificent collection of poetry and prose. Part mantra, part lamentation, part prayer, this incredible book puts us wholly in the presence of an extraordinary and brave talent, whose voice will linger in your heart and mind long after you read the last word of this book. "-Edwidge Danticat Praise for Lenelle Moi;se: "Lenelle Moise brings fierce passion."-New York Times "Piercing, covering territory both intimate and political. vivid and powerful."-Curve Magazine "See Moise push stories from her mouth like it might save your life."-The Root "-- Provided by publisher.
