bookshelves: currently-reading, fiction

The immensity, the loneliness of the further reachers of French Africa is an impressively suggestive backdrop for the [campaign] which is launched by a stray idealist…A curious and curiously convincing drama…a thoughtful and forceful piece of work. —Kirkus Review

…the first identifiably ecological novel in the literature of France, and perhaps the world. —David Bellos
