Mercatino dell'usato. Sento una voce femminile alla mia destra. Probabile si stia rivolgendo a me. Mi giro. Una signora simpatica e paffuta chiede se la aiuto a trovare La ragazza del treno. Perché sta andando al mare e si è messa in testa di leggerlo. Non lo troviamo. Io, invece, inciampo in una raccolta di novelle indiane. Risalgo sulla bici. E cambio mercatino. Trovo altre due cose. A poco. Mentre sto per andarmene, arriva la signora di cui sopra. Provo anche qui, mi fa. Risalgo ancora sulla bici. Non credo l'abbia trovato. Ma non lo saprò mai.
Presently I’m trying to get the film rights for a French West
Indian novel. I recently took my film festival “The Caribbean Film Corner” to
the Avignon Festival and in November I’ll be chairing a panel on Caribbean
Cinema and Post-Colonial Thought at my Alma Mata the University of the French
West Indies and French Guyana. I’ll be also taking my film festival there as
well. Lastly, I started a Skating company, the MAEDA SAN Skating Company and
plan to sponsor a group of very talented youth.
I started growing my hair because as a West Indian seemed
natural and right. And even though everyone hated it was the true expression of
myself. I have had my locks since 1996.
Louise Erdrich’s new novel LaRose opens with a tragedy: An Ojibwe man is out hunting for deer
and accidentally shoots and kills his best friend’s 5-year-old son, Dusty. The
hunter has a 5-year-old son of his own, and so, in keeping with a practice from
the Ojibwe tribe’s past, 5-year-old LaRose goes to live with Dusty’s family.
“These two families are related by blood and also by
proximity and by friendship, too …” Erdrich explains. “They will
share their child. It’s not exactly giving away a child, but it is a very
profound act of generosity. It also is an act of reparation for something
that’s an unspeakable tragedy.”
Later in the evening, in unsettling flashes, Baba Ramanna’s achievement had seemed inhuman, almost monstrous; as Agastya stared at the fields and orchards, and the two wells, phoenixes that the Baba had helped to rise in triumph out of barrennesss, he felt a little sick – at the immensity of a human ambition, but also at its nobility and virtue, at the limitlessness of the potential of human endeavour, but also the infinite patience and craft required to bring the endeavour to fruition.
