  • Short Description
In the taxi rides you're about to take, you'll be in the company of some classic drivers and of a perspicacious and sharp-eyed passenger, the writer and broadcaster Stanley Péan.
In the taxi rides you're about to take, you'll be in the company of some classic drivers and of a perspicacious and sharp-eyed passenger, the writer and broadcaster Stanley Péan. Veteran translator David Homel, who introduced readers of English to Dany Laferrière with the publication of How to Make to Love to a Negro, now brings us the other major voice of Haitian Montreal: Stanley Péan, here in English for the first time.

Stanley Péan was born in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, in the spring of 1966, and he grew up in the Saguenay region of Quebec, where his parents settled after immigrating in the fall of that same year. A writer and cultural journalist, over the last thirty years, he has published twenty-five works in a variety of genres: novels, short story collections, essays, and fiction for young readers. A music lover, every night of the week Péan hosts a jazz show on ICI Musique, Radio-Canada's music channel. And though he is past fifty, he still has not learned to drive. Which explains the taxis...

"Stanley Péan is an attentive, human writer, able to listen and chat with people who roam Montreal while giving the impression of living in Haiti, connected as they are on a radio that broadcasts words and music from their home country." -- Yvon Paré
