Description:

LITERATURE AND POLITICS IN HAITI TODAY

By Haitian novelist and poet Kettly Mars

 

Kettly Mars was born in 1958 in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, where she resides today. After winnning the 1996 Jacques Stéphen Alexis Prize for short story, her first major collection of poetry and short stories, Un parfum d’encens, was published in 1999. Since then, she has written several novels, including L’heure hybride (Vents d’ailleurs, 2005), Aux Frontières de la soif (Mercure de France, 2013), and Je suis vivant (Mercure de France, 2015). Savage Seasons (Saisons sauvages), translated by Jeanine Herman and published by University of Nebraska Press in 2015, marks Mars’ English-language debut.
