Bravo To Novelist Nadine Pinède!

Patience and hard work = triumph for debut novelist Nadine Pinède (UT 2017).  

With her novel, When the Mapou Sings, due out this September from Penguin Random House, Haitian-American Nadine Pinède gives a fascinating advance look at her work in this piece on CNN.

Based in Belgium, Pinède works at the crossroads of history, poetry and fiction. Following in the footsteps of the great writer Zora Neale Hurston, author of the classic novel Their Eyes Were Watching God, Pinède’s novel is partly inspired by Hurston’s fieldwork in 1930s Haiti and by her own great-grandmother.
