"Haiti with its poverty and its dreams, its daily struggle for survival and its hunger for democracy, seen here through the eyes of a poet... Daniel Wolff weaves together, the tragedies and the magic of a torn land where spirits inhabit mapou trees and where history endlessly repeats itself." --Michèle Montas, Haitian journalist
"Haiti is a complex jigsaw puzzle where the pieces constantly change shape. Daniel Wolff changes the shape of his narrative from page to page to give us, the readers, a glimpse into a place we are taught not to see, not to smell, not to understand. If we did see, if we did smell, if we did understand the civil war that is Haiti, we would demand answers. --Richard Morse, musician, founder of RAM
