The Magic Island book. It's difficult for me to say whether I liked the book or not because of Seabrook's attitude toward black Haitians. I felt uncomfortable while reading the book, but it really made me think about how racism is inherent in a lot of western art and culture. I had kind of the same feeling while reading this book as Elly described after watching Mad Men for the first time- it was fascinating in part because everyone is so wrong in their thoughts and actions by today's standards.

The Magic Island - William Seabrook. See page 20. Seabrook, with illustrations by Alexander King and photographs by the author, the book claims to be a journalistic study of the island nation of Haiti. Seabrook’s journalism has come into question over the years, and indeed in this book he seems drawn to sensationalism and to subjects which satisfy his own personal interest in the occult.
