it was amazing
Read in January, 1998

This book opened up my eyes on the cultural heritage of colonization on my peers, coming from a tropical island, an ex-french colony.

Lots of elements in the book were very familiar; the sugar cane workers, the addiction to the escapism of rum, the stratification of society by skin colour.

A poignant tale from Zobel.
