Description

In a sexual frenzy, Mina tries to lose both herself and the phantoms that have haunted her since she left Guadeloupe. In particular, she cannot elude the ghost of her beloved sister Rosalia, who burned in a fire from which Mina escaped. Ultimately, in the company of a tormented man recently released from a mental hospital, Mina returns to Piment, her birthplace, to unravel the mystery of her familys curse. Sorting through stories of quarrels and betrayals, incest and rivalry, black magic and sorcery, the two find what they seek: the key to what tortures them. In their quest, Gisle Pineau explores the questions of migration, exile, and return that have distinguished her work among Francophone writers within the Creole tradition. An intensely felt and strikingly original tale, Devils Dance shows Pineaus genius for mapping the lost soul in search of itself. Gisle Pineau is a psychiatric nurse and novelist living in Paris. She is considered by many to be one of the canonical writers in the creolit movement in Francophone literature. Her novel Lesprance-macadam, later translated as Macadam Dreams (Nebraska 2003), is frequently cited as a masterpiece of French-Caribbean literature. C. Dickson is a professional translator living in France whose many translations include Pineaus Macadam Dreams and Mohammed Dibs Savage Night, both available in Bison Books editions.
