While reading up on Haitian writer Evelyne Trouillot I came across a great interview she did with Edwidge Danticat discussing a short story of hers she had this to say We think we know our history when in fact we only know a part of it We do not talk about the enslaved men and women we talk about the heroes and since most of the heroes in the traditional history books are men we talk mostly about great men I rather like the big mass of enslaved people the ones I called the “invisible” since nobody wanted to pay attention to them And of course there were many invisible women She brings those women vividly to life in The Infamous RosalieAs for the novel itself I hope to put together a elouent review but it's poignant and full of genuine pain than anything I've read recently She knows the history of Haiti here still Saint Domingue intimately and she spares nothing; however she brings deep vital humanity to the invisible women she hoped to pull from the shadows of the brutal past there's inspiration to be found in the horror I hope of her works are available soon

Given what we are experiencing in the US perhaps glimpsing now the legacy of slavery this historical tale echoes and rattles While the particulars seem uniue to Haiti the cruelty of plantation owners and dehumanization of slaves stolen from Africa is not And yet the main character is so deep and the author paints the emotional palette so expertly that the book emerges as a testament to the humanity of the slaves who were determined to grab at freedom and ultimately rebelI must comment on the absolutely superb translation as I felt as if I could taste the rolling uality of the original language Sometimes books translated into English can be clunky; this one is just the opposite
