This volume contains a critical edition of interconnected stories by the Haitian writer Roger Dorsinville. They unfold in the form of a journey from childhood in the Caribbean to old age in Africa, and in the circular form of initiation retrospectively understood as a key to masculine and feminine behaviour in the Caribbean and Africa. The introduction argues that these stories draw the reader's attention to a Conradian link between narrative form and power tactics.
