A novel of Martinique through the eyes of its people.

Slave old man by Patrick Chamoiseau( Book )

45 editions published between 1997 and 2019 in 4 languages and held by 1,002 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From one of the most innovative and subversive novelists writing in French, a "writer of exceptional and original gifts" (The New York Times), whose Texaco won the Prix Goncourt and has been translated into fourteen languages, Patrick Chamoiseau's Slave Old Man is a gripping, profoundly unsettling story of an elderly slave's daring escape into the wild from a plantation in Martinique, with his master and a fearsome hound on his heels. We follow them into a lush rain forest where nature is beyond all human control: sinister, yet entrancing and even exhilarating, because the old man's flight to freedom will transform them all in truly astonishing--even otherworldly--ways, as the overwhelming physical presence of the forest reshapes reality and time itself. Chamoiseau's exquisitely rendered new novel is an adventure for all time, one that fearlessly portrays the demonic cruelties of the slave trade and its human costs in vivid, sometimes hallucinatory prose. Offering a loving and mischievous tribute to the Creole culture of Martinique and brilliantly translated by Linda Coverdale, this novel takes us on a unique and moving journey into the heart of Caribbean history. -- Provided by publisher

Biblique des derniers gestes : roman by Patrick Chamoiseau( Book )

22 editions published between 2001 and 2010 in French and Japanese and held by 320 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A quarante-huit ans, créole de la langue comme jamais, Patrick Chamoiseau, éducateur en Martinique et Prix Goncourt 1992 pour Texaco, signe un roman immense, fou, touffu et très clair. Une épopée où dans le creuset luxuriant des adjectifs, un garçon devient, par les femmes, un guerrier, un rebelle, un homme-monde et un sage. Biblique des derniers gestes raconte l'histoire d'un journaliste qui recueille l'histoire d'une grande figure martiniquaise (totalement imaginaire, que les historiens se rassurent) nommée Balthazar Bodule-Jules. Descendant d'esclaves, fils de l'Afrique en douleur, Balthazar enfant est ensorcelé par Yvonette. Jeune homme, il apprend la révolte auprès d'une femme, la douceur et la délicatesse auprès d'une autre, participe à toutes les guerres révolutionnaires et néocoloniales, à Madagascar, en Bolivie, en Afrique, puis, plus tard, revient au pays, survivre au temps et à la geste, pacifié, dans l'endroit qui l'a vu naître. Fils d'Aimé Césaire et frère d'Edouard Glissant, Patrick Chamoiseau, comme tous les grands auteurs épiques, se moque comme d'une guigne du vraisemblable. Ce qu'il tutoie, lui, du bout de sa langue qui dit mieux qu'aucun mot l'oppression et le chant, c'est la vérité. Une vérité si incarnée, si éloquente, si peu "rhétoriqueuse" qu'elle vous rince tout d'une pièce. from http://www.lexpress.fr/culture/livre/biblique-des-derniers-gestes_806222.html (May 10, 2013)

As migrants embark on perilous journeys across oceans and deserts in pursuit of sanctuary and improved living conditions, what is the responsibility of those safely ensconced in the nations they seek to enter?

L'empreinte à Crusoé : [récit] by Patrick Chamoiseau( Book )

"Robinson Crusoé vient de passer vingt ans de solitude dans son île déserte. Il a dû reconstruire son équilibre. C'est avec fierté -- celle d'avoir soumis l'île à sa domination -- qu'il entame ce matin-là une promenade rituelle sur la plage où il avait mystérieusement échoué il y a tant d'années. C'est alors qu'il découvre l'inconcevable : dans le sable, une empreinte. Celle d'un homme. Passé l'affolement, puis la posture agressive et guerrière, le solitaire s'élance à la recherche de cet Autre qui lui apporte ce dont il avait oublié l'existence : l'idée même de l'humain. Commence alors une étrange aventure qui le précipite en présence de lui-même et d'une île inconnue jusqu'alors. Celui qui avait réussi à survivre sans civilisation, sans culture, sans autrui, doit maintenant affronter ce qu'il n'aurait pu imaginer ailleurs qu'ici : la relation à l'impensable."--Page 4 of cover
