Sparks in the Dark: A Lighter Shade of Blue, a Poetic Memoir
Sparks in the Dark (designed by Warbler Books) chronicles Jacques Fleury's (a.k.a The Haitian Firefly) journey out of Haiti, living in America, & realizing his American Dream: becoming a published writer. This revolutionary book is imbued with lush evocative language; an innovative mixture of great Spiritual and intellectual magnitude. A blend of prose and poetry that explores ideologies of abuse,oppression, dictatorship, and essentially dissension. The Boston Globe says "Jacques Fleury depicts his story with pathos and humor." Emmy winning former WGBH Television producer Lynette Laveau says "Fleury intrepidly and passionately weaves a tapestry of poems that keep the reader on a tight rope trajectory through his optimism, veracity and wonderment and emerges as philosopher and activist." Fleury is an autonomous imagination unlike any other. You will be taken on a fantastic journey of self discovery & acceptance. Sparks shows that out of misery, comes joy, beauty & essentially survival of the human spirit!
