About this title


Natchitoches landowner Pierre Metoyer convinces his slave Marie Thérèze, called “Coincoin,” that they can live in a special world of their own, where the color of their skin does not matter. No Other World, an engrossing fictional account of the extraordinary life of Coincoin, dramatizes the complexities of slavery in the late 1700s. After having four children by another slave, Coincoin became Pierre’s concubine, producing ten children and enhancing the value of his estate by ten slaves. When Metoyer later married a white woman, Coincoin learned a hard lesson—for her there was no other world than slavery. Later, as a free woman, Coincoin gave birth to her own empire, Yucca Plantation, now called Melrose Plantation, near Natchitoches, Louisiana.

About the Author:

Lake Charles native Norman German has published four novels, including the best-selling A Savage Wisdom, an imaginative reconstruction of the life of Toni Jo Henry, the only woman executed in Louisiana’s electric chair. German’s scholarly articles give new insight into the works of Gwendolyn Brooks, Zora Neale Hurston, Ralph Ellison, Ernest Hemingway, Nathaniel Hawthorne, and other important American writers. His short fiction has been featured in leading literary and commercial venues, including Shenandoah, The Virginia Quarterly Review, Salt Water Sportsman, and Sport Fishing. His most recent work is an innovative vocabulary book, The Word on Words, which uses entertaining word histories to facilitate building a dynamic vocabulary. He is a professor of English at Southeastern Louisiana University.
