From the Back Cover
Telumee, peasant of the Guadeloupe born at the beginning of the century, was raised by his great-grandmother, "high Negress" aptly named Queen Without a Name. Telumee suffered her womanhood, Black and exploited. Yet it is in the company of Elijah or near Amboise, the rebel, his desire of happiness, "by harvesting baskets full sweetness that falls from the sky" is the strongest. Here is the world of the West Indies, with its colors, its smells, its secret truth, delivered by a novelist who appropriates the French language for submission to black music.
