"They have written an essential text on identity."-"Afriscopes""This is a very philosophical, well-written book that appeals to the intellectual aspect of our spirit. . . . Everything calls to us in this little booklet."

One of the most precious qualities of both individual and collective identity, write Adouard Glissant and Patrick Chamoiseau here, is that it is always changing. And so fixed national identities are always at risk of suppressing or destroying our identity, both as members of a group and as individuals. Today, this repressive force is perhaps stronger than ever before, and the walls that are being built along the border between the United States and Mexico, or Israel's "security wall," to name just two examples, must be stopped for all our sakes.

Born in Martinique in 1928, Adouard Glissant is a poet and literary critic. His establishment of the separatist Front Antillo-Guyanais party in 1959 provoked his exile for the next six years from his native island. Among his other publications are "Poetics of Relation" (1997), "Caribbean Discourse" (1999), and "Faulkner, Mississippi" (2005).

Patrick Chamoiseau was born in 1953 in Martinique, where he currently resides. His novel "Texaco" was awarded the Prix Goncourt in 1992. He has written books of fiction and nonfiction alike, including "To Write in a Dominated Country" (1997), "Chronicle of the Seven Sorrows" (2003), and "Creole Folktales" (1997).
