Oscar Donadieu, giovanotto sensibile e introverso, ultimo erede di un potente clan di armatori della Rochelle, sbarca a Tahiti sognando «di immergersi nella natura, di vivere a tu per tu con lei e con lei sola, rinunciando agli agi della civiltà».

Banana Tourist is sort of an existential sequel to Donadieu's Will. Tahiti as hell. The last stop in a descent into nothingness. The story is one-half of the volume "Lost Moorings".
