It is a poor black woman's tale of heroic survival, set in the early 20th century, harsh agrarian environment of a Caribbean island. Through the richly imaged narration of a constantly evolving, cultural significant and always entertaining saga, the author leads the reaer into her native West Indian realm of legends, magic, folkloric wisdom and traditional reverence for the elderly and the past.

It provides a synthesis of the latest critical studies, and a thorough interpretation of Creole terms, symbolic imagery and a unique cultural background. Here at Walmart.

She currently resides in both Lausanne, France and Guadeloupe. Elderly and disabled, Mariotte spends her final days in a Paris asylum for the aged as she revisits her past. In their second collaboration, the couple continued to revisit history from the perspective of a woman of color. When it was translated into English the year of its original publication, Simone finally attained credit as co-author. To date, no studies exist which consider the Schwarz-Bart partnership in depth.
