Heremakhonon: A Novel

Out of Stock. Usually despatches within 3 weeks.


Veronica Mercier, a sophisticated Caribbean woman teaching and living in Paris, journeys to West Africa in pursuit of her "identity". There, she becomes involved with a prominent political figure - and must find her way among the often misleading guises of ambition, idealism, and violence.

Conveying a mosaic of feelings (from childhood and adolescence in Guadeloupe, university days in Paris, and experiences in Africa), Heremakhonon - "Welcome House" in Mande - also invites the reader to enter the acrid world of modern Africa.

The French-language edition published in 1976.
