Deborah, perhaps it's because my work with Haiti these
last few years has been about such lost and death, that
one line in your new book "Skin" touched such
places. Thank you for the tool of combat, my sister. I
shall commit it to memory .

greater the absence of the body..." Drisana

"motherlines or breast-feeding the diaspora"
