Praise for Haiti Glass:

Haiti Glass is a magnificent collection of poetry and prose. Part mantra, part lamentation, part prayer, this incredible book puts us wholly in the presence of an extraordinary and brave talent, whose voice will linger in your heart and mind long after you read the last word of this book.”—Edwidge Danticat

City Lights is proud to be celebrating the release of:

Haiti Glass

by Lenelle Moïse

The latest poetry cohaitillection in the City Lights/Sister Spit series, edited by Michelle Tea!

Haiti Glass is a thunderstorm of poetics, politics, and art which delve deep into the language of life and present a dual portrait: one of a Haitian immigrant living within a suburban landscape in Boston and one of an artist pulled by both pop culture and the devastating effects of society. Moise’s poetry breathes into itself and expresses a multitude of emotions and observations that drape even the worst scenario’s in a blanket of strong poetic verse.
