DescriptionVeronica 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.
