About the Author

Jacques Stephen Alexis had already gained international recognition for his fiction when he returned to Haiti from Cuba in 1961 as part of a small invasion force. He disappeared and presumably died at the hands of Duvalier's Tontons Macoutes at the age of thirty-nine.

Carrol F. Coates is Professor of French and Comparative Literature at the State University of New York, Binghamton. He has translated numerous books, including The Festival of the Greasy Pole, by René Depestre, and Dignity, by Jean-Bertrand Aristide, both published by the University Press of Virginia.

Reviews

How extremely exciting to have Jacques Stephen Alexis' masterpiece Général Compère Soleil finally translated in English for a whole new generation of readers to enjoy, question, and admire. This is another chance for all of us to continue to celebrate this brave and timeless narrative and remember this most committed and enormously talented writer.

--Edwidge Danticat, author of The Farming of Bones
