Original prospectus laid in. Carpentier was born in Havana in 1904 of a Russian mother and a French architect father. He studied music and architecture, then worked as a journalist before serving seven months in prison for signing a manifesto against the Cuban dictator, Machado. He eventually escaped to Paris, where he read extensively, worked as an editor, and came into contact with the French surrealists, Andre Breton, Louis Aragon, and Tristan Tzara. 'The Kingdom of This World' is a historical novel based on the revolution and reign of the obscure black king, Henri Christophe, which he wrote after an extensive study of Haiti following a visit there in 1943.
