Charlie Chapo is the Haitian nickname of an American traveler who's tried to adopt Haitian culture as his own. At dawn on January 12, 2010, he walks into the hills above Port-au-Prince as an earthquake lays waste to the city below. A pilgrimage of sorts, his journey that day takes him into, through and out of himself, toward another identity. Out of the shattered world fallen around him comes a kind of reconstructed self.

Madison Smartt Bell is the author of the prize-winning trilogy about the Haitian Revolution. The Chicago Tribune called his National Book Award finalist, All Souls' Rising, a "masterpiece." He is the author of fourteen novels, most recently The Color of Night, and has been a frequent visitor to Haiti since 1995.
