Double Play: The Story of an Amazing World Record
Frank Martinus Arion
|Chamoiseau, a graduate student, arrives in Texaco, the illegal settlement above Fort-de-France, and is knocked unconscious by a rock. One volatile inhabitant has responded viscerally to the city official come to order the razing of his home. Others notice the coincidence between Chamoiseau's arrival|| and more positive events. Thus, in hope, and fear of police reprisal, they revive this 'Christ,' and bring him to Marie-Sophie Laborieux. In 'the battle of her life' Texaco's founder begins to persuade the 'Bird of Cham' to preserve her story and that of her people, to spare her town.
|BOOKS BY PATRICK CHAMOISEAU:|
Through his narrator, Marie-Sophie Laborieux, a daughter of slaves, Chamoiseau chronicles 150 years in the painful history of Martinique.
