A Tale of Martinique

By Patrick Chamoiseau
Photographs by Jean-Luc Laguarigue
Zoland Books

Intoxicating in its language, lush in its evocation of Creole island culture, Seven Dreams of Elmira: A Tale of Martinique is a vivid and hallucinatory fable, written by widely acclaimed author Patrick Chamoiseau and illustrated with stunning photographic portraits by Jean-Luc Laguarigue. Based on interviews, observation, and invention, this story takes as its canvas the everyday lives of the workers at the old Saint-Etienne rum distillery in the hills of Martinique, and the strange vision of the beautiful Elmira who appears to a select few. This magical tale explores themes that are specific to the West Indies, but universally resonant.
