Krik? Krak! is a collection of short stories about Haitian women living in Haiti and in the United States as immigrants. The collection centers on themes of Haitian identity, national censorship, violence against women, and womanhood in the context of Haitian nationality. The stories are connected by a thread of ancestry and familial memory, with characters remembering the protagonists of preceding stories or even writing down those stories themselves despite the climate of harsh censorship present in Haiti.
