This is a big ambitious novel following the lives of people living in the poorer areas of Fort-de-France in Martinique. It is a novel full of life and inventiveness and insight into the history of the area, including the suburb of Texaco that starts as a squatters settlement on the land owned by the oil company. It's fascinating and engrossing.
