THE BOOK CORNER #12 – LE COEUR À RIRE ET À PLEURER

The Book Corner #12 : Maryse Condé

 

📕 Maryse Condé, Le Coeur à rire et à pleurer. 1999

In this beautiful portrait of Guadeloupe in the 1950s, Maryse Condé opens up to us by telling us about her childhood and her family.

She takes a warm look at her native island while leading us to question themes such as alienation, education or the relationship between mainland France and the West Indies.

This work is not her bestseller but we have chosen to share it with you to help you discover or re-discover a side of our great lady of Letters. Thanks to this book, she won the Alternative Nobel Prize for Literature in 2018.

Good reading,
Lisanga Team
