The King is not my cousin

Synopsis

The author of Karukera ensoleillée, Guadeloupe échouée (1980), Elzéa Foule Aventurin gives herself, in 2017, to a series of interviews with her granddaughter. Together they retrace, not without malice, a family history, sailing from one end of the Black Atlantic to the other.
