Abstract:

In Miracle in Haiti, Rafael Gumucio adopts the voice of a woman who is recovering from a dubious aesthetic surgery in a Caribbean clinic, under the care of a black cook with infinite patience and refined irony. Although not exempt from love, the view of the world that Carmen Prado has is blatantly incorrect, scathing, and contradictory, and “always exaggerated,” according to the narrator, as a counterpoint to her heady monologue. With first Carnaval and then political and social violence in Haiti as a backdrop, the novel takes place primarily in the room where Carmen Prado is recovering, while indelicately recalling her past, thinking of her present, and caustically speculating on her future, always accompanied by her selfless caretaker, with whom she ends up forming an endearing—and somewhat sedentary—female version of Quixote and Sancho Panza.
