Editorial Reviews


"[The poems of Red Earth / Latérite create] a comprehensive tale of life—'Life in all colors: green and unripe; bitter and bittersweet.' And it is the art with which this tale is carried through that has established Véronique Tadjo as one of the most accomplished writers of her generation, a fact to which this translation bears ample witness." (F. Abiola Irele, author of The African Imagination)

About the Author

Born in Paris and raised in Ivory Coast, VERONIQUE TADJO is the author of numerous works of fiction and poetry and of The Shadow of Imana (2000), a series of reflections on the genocide in Rwanda. In 2005, she was honored with the prestigious Grand Prix Littéraire d'Afrique Noire, awarded each year by the Association des Écrivains de Langues Françaises to an author from French-speaking Africa for the body of his or her work. She is currently based in Johannesburg.

Translator PETER S. THOMPSON teaches Romance languages and literatures at Roger Williams University. The author of numerous publications, he has contributed extensively to the study of creolity and francophone writing worldwide.
