"Tout ce que nous avons comme références sur la modernité nous vient de l'Europe. Le livre nous propose un nouveau discours, à partir de la culture haïtienne et de ses multiples héritages, qui met en valeur l'aspect authentique de ma production plastique." Phillipe Dodard nous parle de la nouvelle publication sur son travail, de son parcours, de ses expériences spirituelles et du métissage d'une esthétique qui est en même temps l'indigénisme et son dépassement.

Released in December 2009, the novel which started life as a series of excerpts shared on the author's blog has brought only accolades in its wake.

Since its release, A Heart to Mend has appeared in the top twenty West African Books on the Amazon Kindle Bestseller list. Reports from the publisher Authorhouse, confirm the great reception the book has got so far in terms of sales. The novel also was recently selected by The New African Woman July Issue as one of the Summer Must-reads alongside The Long Song by Andrea Levy and The Memory of Love by Aminatta Forna.
