BOB SHACOCHIS Reading from THE WOMAN WHO LOST HER SOUL

Bob Shacochis’s first collection of stories won the National Book Award
for First Fiction, and his second collection, was awarded the Prix de Rome
from the American Academy of Arts and Letters. His op-eds on the US
military, Haiti, and Florida politics have appeared in The New York Times, The
Washington Post, and The Wall Street Journal.  Renowned through four
award-winning books for his gritty and revelatory visions of the Caribbean,
Bob Shacochis returns to occupied Haiti in The Woman Who Lost Her Soul before
sweeping across time and continents to unravel tangled knots of romance,
espionage, and vengeance. In riveting prose, Shacochis builds a complex
and disturbing story about the coming of age of America in a pre-9/11 world."
No one in American literature is better at casting his imagination into the
deepest currents of American culture and politics than Bob Shacochis. The
long, ardent, admiring wait for his next novel has been worth every
moment: The Woman Who Lost Her Soul is hismasterpiece.” --Robert Olen Butler
