I wanted to raise the voice of a lot of the people that I knew growing up, and this was, for the most part, poor people who had extraordinary dreams but also very amazing obstacles. ~Edwidge Danticat

I love her name! I bought Breath, Eyes, Memory (is that right?) recently and can't wait to read it. :)

Edwidge Danticat is one of my most favorite authors. I loved "My Brother Is Dying" most of all. I've read, I think, three of her books. I want to read everything she writes. She is just a great author.

I have Brother, I'm Dying up next to read for a book club meeting next week. I have heard nothing but great things about it so far. I can't wait to start reading it.
