I enjoyed the history of Martinique, the magical realism, and the theme of language as a key to identity (original was a mix of French and Creole). But this was slow and I didn't feel compelled to return to it.

I'm a little obsessed with myths and folktales. So everything I say is in the context of that. If you don't like reading myths, folktales or fairy tales, then skip on down to the next book.

As far as mythology books go, this one was superb. Up there with the best I've read. Whether through the strength of the story teller (its' a little cliche, but you really do get the feeling that he's sitting

Not even gonna pretend: there’s a ton in this book that I just did not understand despite my best efforts. “Slave Old Man” is incredibly dense despite being only 176 pages. It’s categorized as Literary Fiction but I’d argue this counts as Poetry. The prose is beautiful but can feel hectic and inaccessible. Translated from the French Creole, “Slave Old Man” is about a slave who “maroons” from the sugar plantation and escapes into the thick of the jungle, doggedly tracked and pursued by the master’s dog. It took me nearly a month to get through this book and it’s one I expect to revisit again and again.… (mais)
