Summary
A richly textured portrait of the Caribbean island of Martinique by the award-winning author of Philadelphia Fire captures a world of lush natural beauty, African and Creole cultural influences, a legacy of slavery and colonialism, and an active volcano.
Amazon.com description: Product Description: In this compelling travel memoir, two-time PEN/Faulkner Award winner John Edgar Wideman explores Martinique's seductive natural beauty and culture, as well as its vexed history of colonial violence and racism. Attempting to decipher the strange, alluring mixture of African and European that is Creole, he and his French traveling companion develop a powerful attraction to one another which they find at once threatened and elevated by a third party—the island itself. A rich intersection of place, history, and the intricacies of human relations, Wideman's story gets deep into the Caribbean and close to the heart of the Creole experience.
