#354: inquiring about Margaret Papillon (fwd)
I read "La Marginale", a beautiful, meaningful, intriguing, even romantic
novel in French this summer by Margaret Papillon.
It is about the intricate life and issues in a middle class, light skin
family . I bought two of her books while in Haiti. Does anyone know more
about her besides she was born in l958 has two kids and a husband? From her
novel, I have a sense that the author had lived or studied in the U.S. Does
she come and do readings in the Haitian community abroad?
It's too bad that such thoughtful and pragmatic authors don't get too much
If I had the means, I would make a play and a movie out of"La Marginale".
It's a good book and Papillon is an excellent novelist. I don't get too crazy
about novelists, but I like her writings.
