Short stories

From New York Times-bestselling powerhouse Roxane Gay, AYITI is a powerful collection exploring the Haitian diaspora experience.

In AYITI, a married couple seeking boat passage to America prepares to leave their homeland. A young woman procures a voodoo love potion to ensnare a childhood classmate. A mother takes a foreign soldier into her home as a boarder, and into her bed. And a woman conceives a daughter on the bank of a river while fleeing a horrific massacre, a daughter who later moves to America for a new life but is perpetually haunted by the mysterious scent of blood.

Originally published by a small press, this edition will make Gay's debut widely available for the first time, including several new stories.

'These early stories showcase Gay's prowess as one of the voices of our age' (National Post, Canada).
