In the wake of her mother’s death, the Haitian-American author discusses the power of language:
“Grief feels like—each time, and I’ve been through this with my father and now with my mother—but each time it feels really new. It feels like nobody else has experienced this in their lives. And you’re walking down the street and, especially right after it happened, and you wonder how the world can go on, you know?”
