Announcing:
Erzulie's Skirt
a novel by Ana-Maurine Lara
Release Date: October 1, 2006
Published by Redbone Press: www.redbonepress.com
Set in the age of urbanization in the Dominican Republic over the course of several lifetimes, Erzulie’s Skirt is a tale how women and their families struggle with love, tragedy and destiny. Told from the perspectives of three women, Erzulie’s Skirt takes us from the rural villages and sugar cane plantations to the slums of Santo Domingo, and along 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.
