Book Description New York: Random House, 1942. First Edition. A novel by the poet Makhali-Phal (1908-1965), born Nelly-Pierrette Guesde, the daughter of a minor French administrator and a Cambodian mother ostensibly of Royal lineage. Her pen-name, reputedly given to her by King Sisowath, refers to the sound made by the blade of the plow of the goddess Kali. Born in Phnom Penh, Makhali-Phal's work concerned the perils of metissage (mixed-race identity) n a colonial context. In this novel, for example, a Khmer Princess educated in Paris struggles with her place at the intersection of East and West. With the exception of Prince Areno Yukanthor, the author of a slim volume of poetry, Makhali-Phal is the sole representative of Cambodian Francophone literature. A very good plus copy in a bright, generally unsoiled dustwrapper with a few minor faults. Seller Inventory # 14473
