9782070318476: L'Africain (French Edition)

J'ai longtemps rêvé que ma mère était noire. Je m'étais inventé une histoire, un passé, pour fuir la réalité à mon retour d'Afrique, dans ce pays, dans cette ville où je ne connaissais personne, où j'étais devenu un étranger. Puis j'ai découvert, lorsque mon père, à l'âge de la retraite, est revenu vivre avec nous en France, que c'était lui l'Africain. Cela a été difficile à admettre. Il m'a fallu retourner en arrière, recommencer, essayer de comprendre. En souvenir de cela, j'ai écrit ce petit livre.

Book Description Gallimard, France, 2008. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: French . Brand New Book. Eine Afrikareise in der Kindheit wurde für Le Clezio, einem der bedeutendsten zeitgenössischen französischen Schriftsteller, zur Initiation. Hier lernte er eine Welt kennen, die ihn mit ihren fremden Lebensformen, den exotischen Gerüchen und Farben in ihren Bann schlug und nie wieder loslassen sollte. Und so erzählt er von der Reise, die ihn 1948 nach Afrika führte und wo er zum ersten Mal seinem Vater begegnete. Einem Tropenarzt, der in Nigeria Lepra und Sumpffieber kurierte, den Kolonialismus hasste, mit einer Piroge das Landesinnere erkundete und Landschaften und Menschen fotografierte. Und er erzählt die Liebesgeschichte seiner Eltern, die in Kamerun, vor seiner Geburt, spielt, als der Traum eines von Krankheit und Fremdherrschaft befreiten Afrika noch realisierbar schien.
