Member of the Académie française (French Academy)

“I have always dreamed of a biography that would exclude dates and places to take into account only emotions or sensations, even fleeting ones. The first time I saw a dragonfly. The time I entered the sea not knowing that I had to know how to swim. The time I witnessed the execution of a political prisoner near the Port-au-Prince cemetery. My mother’s last look at me as I went into exile. My first walk in the courtyard of the Academy. And every time I looked up at a starry sky hoping to find La Niña Estrellita.”
