General Note
Originally published in France by Éditions Dodo vole, 2012, under the title Les larmes d'Ietsé.
"Named after the first man at the creation of the world in Malagasy mythology, Ietsy Razak was raised to perpetuate the glory of his namesake and expected to be as illuminated as his Great Ancestor. But in the chaos of modernity, his young life is marked only by restlessness, maddening insomnia, and an adolescent apathy.When an unexpected tragedy ships him off to a boarding school in France, his trip to the big city is no hero's journey. Ietsy loses himself in the immediate pleasures of body and mind. Weighed down by his privilege and the legacy of his name, Ietsy struggles to find a foothold.Only a return to the zEnchanted Island,y as Madagascar is lovingly known, helps Ietsy stumble toward his destiny. This award-winning retelling of Madagascar's origin story offers a distinctly twenty-first-century perspective on the country's place in an ever-more-connected world. "--Provided by publisher.
