Winner of the Pushcart Short Story Prize and a finalist for the 1995 National Book Award for her collection of stories called Krik? Krak!, Edwidge Danticat again visits her homeland of Haiti through her second novel, The Farming of Bones, this time exploring the historic animosity and military strife between the island states of Haiti and the Dominican Republic in 1937.
