Summary
WINNER OF THE NATIONAL BOOK CRITICS CIRCLE AWARD
WINNER OF THE STORY PRIZE
WINNER OF THE 2020 VILCEK PRIZE IN LITERATURE

From the internationally acclaimed, best-selling author of Brother, I'm Dying, a collection of vividly imagined stories about community, family, and love.

Rich with hard-won wisdom and humanity, set in locales from Miami and Port-au-Prince to a small unnamed country in the Caribbean and beyond, Everything Inside is at once wide in scope and intimate, as it explores the forces that pull us together, or drive us apart, sometimes in the same searing instant.

In these eight powerful, emotionally absorbing stories, a romance unexpectedly sparks between two wounded friends; a marriage ends for what seem like noble reasons, but with irreparable consequences; a young woman holds on to an impossible dream even as she fights for her survival; two lovers reunite after unimaginable tragedy, both for their country and in their lives; a baby's christening brings three generations of a family to a precarious dance between old and new; a man falls to his death in slow motion, reliving the defining moments of the life he is about to lose.

This is the indelible work of a keen observer of the human heart--a master at her best.

Booklist Review: "Following The Art of Death (2017), a reflection on her mother's passing and writing, Danticat focuses this haunting eight-story collection on, well, death. Looming death becomes a bargaining chip in Dosas, when an ex-husband begs his ex-wife to help save her kidnapped replacement, and in In the Old Days, when an adult daughter is summoned to the final bedside of her never-met-before father. Survivors navigate new lives in The Gift, which portrays an artist who lost her lover's baby, and her lover, who has lost his wife and young daughter, and in Seven Stories, in which a prime minister's wife and daughter persevere after his assassination. Fatal illness causes a living death in The Port-au-Prince Marriage Special, a tale about a young woman diagnosed with AIDS, and in Sunrise, Sunset, with an aging woman succumbing to memory loss, while inhumane brutality has a similar effect on the Haitian rape victims a privileged U.S. teen encounters as a recovery center volunteer in Hot Air Balloons. In the final story, a Haitian refugee recalls his life in 6.5 seconds as he plummets to his death. Danticat once again urges readers out of comfort zones to bear witness to urgent topics refugee crises, polarizing inequity, violence, disasters and alchemizes sorrows and tragedies into opportunities for literary enlightenment.--Terry Hong Copyright 2019 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Families fracture and reform in Danticat's outstanding and deeply memorable story collection. Set among the Haitian "dyaspora" including Miami, New York, and Haiti itself, the tales describe the complicated lives of people who live in one place but are drawn elsewhere. The American children of immigrants discover that their lives have been shaped by their parents' Haitian pasts, as in the touching, funny "In the Old Days," when a New York high school teacher learns that her absent father, who divorced her mother and returned to Haiti, is dying, and rushes to meet him. In the book's standout story, "Sunrise, Sunset," a woman with dementia struggles to impart the lessons of motherhood to her own daughter: "You are always saying hello to them while preparing them to say goodbye to you." And the charming "Hot Air Balloons" follows two college freshmen--Neah, the child of academics, and Lucy, the daughter of migrant farm workers--as each comes to her own understanding of Haiti, a place of "idyllic beaches" and "dewy mountaintops," as well as corruption and poverty, where girls are "recruited for orgies with international aid workers." In plain, propulsive prose, and with great compassion, Danticat writes both of her characters' losses and of their determination to continue: "There are loves that outlive lovers." 50,000-copy announced first printing.
