Letters from Congo: A Chapbook

In these 13 intimate and epistolary poems, an address, or a physical location where someone can be reached, swiftly morphs into a statement about the delicate nature of voicing one’s political opinions under Haiti's Duvalier regime. In crafting these necessary poems, Legros Georges compels the reader to abandon notions of romantic and glamorous life in exile, offering instead openings onto the endemic challenges of a family’s confrontations and negotiations of a separation that has no expiration date.
