This review dialogues with Kaiama L. Glover's Haiti Unbound to explore how the Spiralist authors have grappled with the problem of history and the difficulty of representing life under the Duvalier regimes. The essay seeks to situate her contribution within a broader field of literary criticism surrounding French Caribbean and Haitian literature, and draws on her approach to analyze a selection of novels by Lyonel Trouillot.
