A Sun to Be Sewn

A Novel

“‘Being Haitian means to be born in blood,’ Jean D’Amérique has written. A Sun to Be Sewn, like D’Amérique’s other novels, poetry, and theatrical works, immerses us in that blood, but he refuses to let his characters be silenced. His words haunt us with the subtlety, nuance, and lyricism that our beautiful and aching country not only inspires, but demands. Jean D’Amérique is a very talented writer and A Sun to Be Sewn is an unforgettable novel.” —Edwidge Danticat, author of Breath, Eyes, Memory

“Jean D’Amérique’s prose has a musical rhythm, making each sentence of A Sun to Be Sewn come alive. He paints a portrait of a child’s world with the delicate touch of a poet. A necessary and stunning rendering of contemporary Haiti, childhood, and what it means to survive, A Sun to Be Sewn is told through a remarkable voice unlike any other, imparting the reader with images that will not soon be forgotten.” —Leila Mottley, New York Times bestselling author of Nightcrawling

“A Shakespearean debut novel, with the tragic beauty of a Géricault painting. Stunning.” —Le Monde des livres

“The genius of Jean D’Amérique is having successfully used a language at once marvelously poetic and very hard. I couldn’t pull myself away, I read it in one sitting.” —Célimène Daudet, France Culture, Affaires culturelles

“Tenderness and violence alternate in this book that describes the ‘gangsterization’ of neighborhoods in the Haitian capital.” —Le Point
