I was interested. A number of days later I went to my library book sale and came across this book and snatched it up. Then, it sat on my shelves for two years. Finally, the day came and I picked it up and I was hooked. The Dew Breaker is a series of stories of various peoples lives in One of the things I love about GR is discovering new authors and new books.

The Dew Breaker is a series of stories of various peoples lives in various times and locations around the world. But they are all linked together in some small way.

By The Dew Breaker, or those who break the serenity of the morning dew. It is the nickname given to a group of torturers in Haiti long ago. A man who did unspeakable things to people a long time ago back in Haiti.

Torture, murder, and left them scared for life. But seeking refugee, and a place to hide and escape what he did, he now lives in New York. Trying to lead a very quiet, peaceful life with his wife and daughter.

He works as a barber. But the people we learn about via the various stories, once again, cross paths with the Dew Breaker s , and are haunted by their past. Some stories go back to Haiti long ago where people tell of their encounter with the Dew Breakers or present day in NYC where people see him, and go through that pain and trauma all over again. But the man himself, is he trying to redeem himself for his past sins. I really liked this story. Since it was a series of linked short stories, I was able to read a story, put it aside and come back to it when I had time.

Issues with reading too many books at once.

As the book unfolds, moving seamlessly between Haiti in the s and New York City today, we enter the lives of those around him, and learn that he has also kept a vital, dangerous secret. A dew breaker, we learn, is a government functionary who comes in the early morning to arrest someone or to burn a house down, breaking the dew on the grass that he crosses. Each chapter reveals the titular man from another viewpoint, including that of his grown daughter, who, on a trip she takes with him to Florida, learns the secret of his violent past and those of the Haitian boarders renting basement rooms in his Brooklyn home. This structure allows Danticat to move easily back and forth in time and place, from Haiti to present-day Florida, tracking diverse threads within the larger narrative. The chapters—most of which were published previously as stories, with the first three appearing in the New Yorker—can feel more like evocative snapshots than richly textured portraits. As the novel circles around the dew breaker, moving toward final episodes in which, as a young man and already dreaming of escape to the U.
