Everything Inside: 12/02/19

Everything Inside

Everything Inside by Edwidge Danticat is a collection of short stories about life, death, and love. They're set in the United States, Haiti and points in between.

Death and tough decisions are the themes tying these stories together. In between is the cultural push and pull of being an immigrant. Similarly there is the balance of work and family and personal well being.

As it's a slim volume, Everything Inside can be read in a couple sittings or lingered over for a week if one story is read each day. It's also a book I plan to linger over the next time I read it.

Four stars
