Quel alliage habile de romance, de politique et d'aventure. Par un amour qui rappelle Lady Chatterley's Lover, Condé démontre que les relations raciales sont encore précaires, les préjugés sur les différences d'âge encore bien ancrées et le gouffre encore riches et pauvres presque impossible à boucher. Dieudonné est le produit de tous ces interdits : sa mère est l'amourette d'un homme riche, son amante est blanche et riche, ses amis le voient comme un traite à leur cause socialiste. À ces thèmes qui s'entre-mêlent, il y a aussi la situation politique précaire du pays, l'héritage trouble et mystérieux du vodou et les paysages magnifiques d'une île tourmentée. C'est une langue riche en images et en expressions créoles qui lie le tout pour créer une superbe fresque colorée et émotive. ( )
