2020 Big Book Projects:
I have three major big projects to finish this year:
- A book on Joseph Antenor Firmin (Routledge) I am editing with the great DrPaul Camy Mocombe: we have reviewed all the sixteen chapters with the exception of two chapters that were originally written in French. We’re currently translating them in English.
- An intellectual history on Haiti (University Press of Mississippi): the manuscript is completed; however, I have to put some final touch on it and incorporate a few suggestions from my reviewers.
- An intellectual biography on Jean Price-Mars (Vanderbilt University Press): I have to finish the last two chapters. They’re in draft forms at the moment.
*** Having just published a co-edited volume on Edwidge Danticat (“Approaches to Teaching the Works of Edwidge Danticat,” Routledge 2019), I would love to write a single author-book about her work. I already wrote a proposal draft. It will be a book about the intersection of literature, death, and redemption in the works of Danticat.
