Description
Information
Schwartz-Bart's own bitter experience of atrocity and oppression in Nazi-occupied Europe finds a clear if distant echo in his deeply moving chronicle of 'A Woman Named Solitude'.

Conceived aboard a slave-ship bound for the Caribbean, Solitude was born into slavery and sold on the auction block, a black chattel of a corrupt society until she heard the ringing of rebellion on the island wind.

The author of 'The Last Of The Just' offers here a sensitive and impassioned portrait of a woman and her race fallen victim to the innate inhumanity of humankind.
