FROM THIS EPISODE

book.jpgFarewell, Fred Voodoo: A Letter from Haiti (Simon & Schusster) is journalist Amy Wilentz's admiring and sober portrait of post-earthquake Haiti. All too aware of her own status as a foreigner, Wilentz is more interested in what it means for her to be an outsider than she is in fashioning herself a beneficent aid worker. As efforts to rebuild Haiti in the wake of the 2010 disaster are still underway, Wilentz talks about literary journalism, being a catastrophist, and the perils of good-hearted impulses.
