This group of interconnected stories are tied together by "the dew breaker" (who comes in early morning), a torturer under Duvalier. All of the characters are in some way related to him. The book is so well written and a testament to the horrors of the Haitian dictatorship and lack of interest from the outside world.

Interesting writing, but the book as a whole is unsatisfying. The author attempted something beyond her grasp in trying tell many different smaller stories that are supposed to be part of a bigger story.
