A highly evocative exploration of Napoleon's final years in exile on the island of St Helena.

After his defeat at Waterloo, Napoleon Bonaparte gave himself up to the English, expecting to end his days leading the life of a country gentleman. Instead he was exiled to the island of St Helena, a prison without walls where he was to spend his last six years at Longwood.

Jean-Paul Kauffmann, who was himself a hostage in Beirut for three years, visits the termite infested house and sits for days in the French Emperor's room. The past seeps into the present, and the house slowly becomes alive with the great man's presence.
