Literature @ CLINCH

We are looking forward to having Néhemy Pierre-Dahomey at the festival, a young author from Port-au-Prince, Haiti, who is going to present his first novel, with the title “Rapatriés” (the returned). It is the story of a woman, who is coming back to her homeland after an unsuccessful passage, and who is settling down in a “quarter of the returned”. The story follows her life and the life of her children over the period of a generation. Néhémy Pierre-Dahomey has been awarded several prices for “Rapatriés”, the German translation of the novel will be published in September at Edition Nautilus.
