"Hadriana in All My Dreams" by René Depestre

This book has been a source of laughter and intrigue during my summer read. In the way that it humorously juxtaposes Haitian Vodou with Catholicism, "Hadriana in All My Dreams" shows how the "real marvelous" enriches Haitian culture. With echoes of "A Hundred Years of Solitude" throughout, this is yet another great translation by Kaiama Glover who continues to make Haitian literature accessible to audiences worldwide. Happy Summer!
