The postcards for my novel, Erzulie's Skirt, arrived today. They're gorgeous!


The text on the back reads:

Erzulie's Skirt
by Ana-Maurine Lara

Set in the age of urbanization in the Dominican Republic over the course of several lifetimes, Erzulie's Skirt is a tale of how women and their families struggle with love, tragedy and destiny. Told from the perspectives of three women, Erzulie's Skirt takes us from rural villages and sugar cane plantations to the slums of Santo Domingo, and through the journey by yola across the sea between the Dominican Republic and Puerto Rico. It is a compelling love story that unearths our deep ancestral connections to land, ritual and memory.
