Summary
This lyrical novel, structured like a Creole quadrille, is a rich ethnography bearing witness to police violence in French Guadeloupe. Narrators both living and dead recount the racial and class stratification that led to a protest-turned-massacre. Dambury's English debut is a vibrant memorial to a largely forgotten atrocity, coinciding with the government's declassification of documents pertaining to the incident
