«“Trouillot writes with his heart on his sleeve . . . and his unabashed empathy for plucky Colin and brave, sexy Mariéla recalls elements of Dickens.”—<i>Publishers Weekly</i>»

Publishers Weekly

«Lyonel Trouillot is perhaps the best known of contemporary Haitian novelists. <i>Children of Heroes</i> shows the author in his prime form for stylistic clarity and emotive impact. His characteristic first-person narrative is a well-constructed story that is vividly realistic and a most tragic tale.”—Thomas C. Spear, editor of <i>Une Journée Haïtienne</i> and coeditor of <i>Céline and the Politics of Difference</i>»
