Chris’s text tells the story of post-quake Haiti through interviews with
Haitian citizens and aid managers. Each interview adds a layer to our
understanding of the suffering of the people and of the heroic efforts
to ameliorate that suffering. The narrative is set in the context of the
country’s history and the Haitian government’s effort to repair and
rebuild their nation. Paul’s photographs capture images not only of
individuals struggling to survive, but also of the innate dignity and
generosity that arises in the midst of the struggle.
Questions for discussion are included in the book along with an interview with the authors.
