Midnight at Noon: A novel that cannot be ignored

Midnight cover bestMidnight at Noon is a sociopolitical novel that x-rays the dire landscape of Haiti and its people. Midnight at Noon is when class antagonisms violently collide in a quest to achieve financial and political rebirth. Midnight at Noon is when the western hemisphere first black republic goes soul searching on a dazzling/revolutionary journey to reclaim its past glory.
