Why read it?
1 author picked All Souls' Rising as one of their favorite books. Why do they recommend it?
As I prepared to write my own novel on Haiti, I searched for a novel of merit already written as part of my preparation. I found this work of Madison Smartt Bell, which was nominated for the National Book Award. This author proved to be a master of the language. I admired his ability to bring Toussaint alive, as well as picturing the culture of the time, and the complexities of a war that changed history.
From Keith's list on the life and history of Haiti.
