An fascinating 2000 mediation on Negritude and the returning immigrant's experience. Diawara discuses his experience under the reign of Sekou Tourre, leaving Guinea, his time in France and the United States, and finally, the return. Part biography, part history of his nation, part meditation on Africa's quest for meaning a la Satre, this is a terrific, English language update on a long held tradition of Franco-African writing from one of its old stalwarts. A pleasure to read.
