The World Is Moving around Me: Quill & Quire review (Feb 2013)

The World Is Moving around Me, Dany Laferriere's memoir about the Haiti earthquake, is reviewed in Quill & Quire:

"Laferrière shades his work with mordant humour and images of surreal horror. Some might argue that such a literary treatment is inappropriate when chronicling human suffering, but Laferrière’s subjectivity and highly personal writing style ultimately demonstrate that each of the hundreds of thousands of lost lives is, in fact, 'worthy of particular attention.'"
