What has the author Pierre Clitandre written? Answer.

Haiti's early novels are either political satires or sympathetic depictions of peasant life. Pierre Clitandre's Cathédrale du mois d'août (Cathedral of the August heat; 1982) is also a successful depiction of the urban poor's world of magic, misery, and desperate optimism. The conventions of realism are apparent in the novels by Frédéric Marcelin, Justin Lhérisson, and Antoine Innocent published at the turn of the century. Duvalierism also created an exodus of Haitian intellectuals, and beginning in the 1970s there has been an increasing Haitian diaspora in cities such as Montreal, Miami, and New York.

A richly colored evocation of life in the slums of Port-au-Prince.
