Multiple copies of the book are available at the reference desk. This informal program is open to everyone. Registration is not required. “Dew Breaker” is a moving work of fiction that explores the world of a “dew breaker,” a torturer, whose brutal crimes in the country of his birth lie hidden beneath his new American reality. Readers meet the man’s devoted wife, his rebellious daughter, his neighbors, tenants, clients, and victims. In the book’s powerful denouement, readers return to the Haiti of the dew breaker’s past, to his last, desperate act of violence, and to his first encounter with the woman who will offer him a form of redemption that will change him forever.
