#3392: Hot Times in Haiti: two replies
Of all the books I have read about Haiti..This is by far the worst. I briefly
met the author when the book came out in 1994. He was doing a book signing at
a local bookstore in Miami. As a person who loves anything about Haiti I went.
I can take contrasting political views, I can even take someone who is miss
informed or someone who has limited knowledge of Haiti. However, this is by
far the most shallow book ever written about Haiti. The writer spends his
time name dropping and talking about his exploits with women..Talking about
casinos, hotels and nightclubs..The book is also poorly written. If there was
ever a book about the Ugly American in Haiti...this is it....two thumbs

The book "Hot Times in Haiti"is a nostalgic piece of a different era
indeed.Tony Hattenbach is the son of an american woman named Muriel Martin
who owns "Kyona Beach"on the "Cote des Arcadins".Tony lived in haiti and ran
his mom's beach operation on occasions.The book was published in Haiti
either by Deschamps or le Natal.
Tony also had a thing for "Timbales".
