A conversation with Néhémy Pierre-Dahomey

We are delighted to start off the year in conversation with Néhémy Pierre-Dahomey, whose début novel, Rapatriés, will take us (back) to Haiti. Pierre-Dahomey’s prose has been described as rhythmic, metaphorical, haunting, and we look forward to sharing it with you. The conversation will be held in French and a recording with English subtitles will be posted on our site shortly thereafter.

Belli marchait, vaillante et décidée, sur ce sentier aussi simple qu’un calvaire. Le soir arrivait. Il portait avec lui une lune bien ronde et un air en mouvement qui jetait des bourrasques sur les quartiers amoncelés.”

Rapatriés, Néhémy Pierre-Dahomey
