Come to the second book club meeting for In All My Dreams by René Depestre. This discussion will focus on Movement 1. In conversation with our colleague at the University of Virginia Marlene L. Daut, we’ll spend time exploring Depestre’s presentation of different moments in Haiti’s history, especially in his richly evocative carnival scene. We’ll also take a close look at the novel’s provocative erotic charge as well as at Depestre’s presentation of Haitian Vodou as both grounded insular phenomenon and source of a most expansive worldview.
