New York Times notable book of the year
In Fort-de-France, Martinique, a colorful group of musicians, street vendors, and hopeless disciples, including the author, gather under a tamarind tree to listen to legendary bard Solibo Magnificent spin tales. Suddenly, in the middle of a raucously entertaining story, Solibo drops dead. So entranced and drunken are his friends, they initially fail to realize that their hero has spoken his last word. One hysterical listener runs to find the doctor and inadvertently returns with the overly eager, sinister chief sergeant, who holds Solibo's friends under suspicion for murder. At turns a madcap murder mystery, a political satire, and a lament on the death of a treasured tradition, Solibo Magnificent is wildly imaginative and exuberantly lyrical.
Praise for Solibo Magnificent
“Both a meaty tale and a cry on behalf of a drowning culture . . . by a poet and a novelist with a raffishly human and lyrical touch.”—Los Angeles Times
“A world class author . . . whose voice and imagination are like nothing you've read before.”—The Washington Post Book World
Patrick Chamoiseau lives on Martinique. He is the writer of Texaco, Les Neuf Consciences du malfini, Chronique des Sept Misères and Solibo Magnifique. Texaco has been translated into 14 languages.
