Summary
"Ready to Burst follows the lives of two young men and their individual attempts to make sense of the deeply troubled society surrounding them. An informed critique of the "brain drain" prompted by the Duvalier dictatorship, Ready to Burst is, in Frankétienne's words, a portrait of "the extreme bitterness of doom in the face of the blind machinery of power." Widely recognized as Haiti's most important literary figure and an outspoken challenger of political oppression, Frankétienne was a candidate for the Nobel Prize for Literature in 2009. The New York Times has called Frankétienne "the Father of Haitian Letters."--
