Full Description

The book Beginnings, Salt, and the Lion's Mouth is a short book (11,400 words) of linked essays that track the literary life of award-winning writer Edwidge Danticat. From its beginnings as a child separated for years from her parents who emigrated from Haiti to the U.S. to provide a better life for the family, to her own move to New York City and her early development as a fiction writer. The book interwaves poetry, Haitian folklore and history with odes to literary heroes Zora Neale Hurston, Lorraine Hansberry, and Toni Morrison, who personally mentored Danticat.
