It began as a project with my mom to read from every Caribbean nation. I stole this idea from Ann Morgan, an English writer who spent 2012 reading a novel from every country in the world. That idea overwhelms me. But I figured I'd start with the Caribbean, since my mom, at 83, has decided to learn Creole.
Already, I've read Edwidge Danticat's The Dew Breaker and Julia Alvarez' In the Time of the Butterflies.
Here is rest of the list so far. I am open to suggestions for which other novels from other Caribbean nations to add to the list.
for May....Haiti: The Dew Breaker
for June....Dominican Republic: In the Time of the Butterflies
for July....Martinique: Texaco
for August....Cuba: Cecilia Valdés
