Review quote

"This wonderful short novel is an ideal introduction to francophone literature and culture for both undergraduate and graduate students. It is very readable and offers a useful perspective on race and gender in the late colonial period." --Francoise Lionnet, author of "Autobiographical Voices" and "Postcolonial Representations""show more
