I am clearing my shelves, looking at things I have loved, imagining the French Caribbean, the France we were. I am thinking of naming someone Vèvè or Damballah.
One of the most interesting people, the deeper people I have met is Assia Djebar. I am looking at some pages of rich prose now and I would like to get this book in French, L’amour, la fantasia.
I think it was the French who came up with the idea of l’écriture féminine and perhaps this does exist in French. I normally do not have a preference for writing by women, but I think I may for French.
