Hi, team. Congrats on getting your blog going. Incidentally, over the week-end, I read something about Graham Greene's novel on Haiti, The Comedians (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Comedians_(novel)). I can't remember what it was, though. Perhaps it's been reissued? Anyway, I'll let you know if I see it again. Maybe it could be a feature on the IJDH site. Apparently, Greene anticipated the mess that Haiti is now in.
Found it again--it was in the Life & Arts section of the FT Week-end edition (Feb 28/March 1, 2009), part of their "book cover" series: http://www.ft.com/cms/s/2/1471ed28-045d-11de-845b-000077b07658.html Since the IJDH site is design challenged, it might be an idea to suggest that they approach Penguin for the rights to use the art on their site--maybe as a way of branding their blog? They could put a footnote about the Graham Greene book and the cover art--and visitors would learn something. Just a thought. Remember, the Web rewards lateral thinking!
Thanks for the find and recommendation!
