Today, there seems to be a never-ending debate on the subject of what constitutes happiness. While some hold that the only thing that can bring true satisfaction is material prosperity, many philosophers and even religionists believe that happiness is a function of the mind. Fritzner Lee Altidor, through the "Tata" story, presents an enchanting journey into what factors make for genuine happiness.
Fritzner Lee Altidor’s “Tata” is a narrative of the life of a young country boy who left the province searching for a better life and yet finds himself looking back to the rural life he once deemed denigrating to draw happy memoirs.
From his vivid recollection of his beloved aunt's daily struggles, he highlights the hard life of illiterate single farm-mothers who labored daily to elevate their children out of poverty through literacy. And yet, their children's education that was supposed to be the path to a fine life would be the rods that destroyed their legacy.
While trying to present this memoir in a crisp, clear, and captivating language, Fritzner does diligence to paint the picture of how the expected legacy for children grapples with Haiti's deteriorating conditions and its educated citizens' role in its unfortunate demise. It paints a gloomy future and yet contends that hope has not entirely been eradicated.
There is no gainsaying that Altidor deserves recognition and praise for his remarkable story telling ability. In “Tata”, Altidor proves that he is as skillful in non-fictional art. Altidor paints creatively the true picture of his society without losing their novelty.
“Tata” is now available for purchase at Amazon, Barnes & Nobles and www.fritzneraltidor.com.
