EVE OUT OF HER RUINS (Paperback)
by Ananda Devi, Jeffrey Zuckerman (translator

EVE OUT OF HER RUINS is a heartbreaking look at the dark corners of the island nation of Mauritius that tourists never see, and a poignant exploration of the construction of personhood at the margins of society. Awarded the prestigious Prix des cinq continents upon publication as the best book written in French outside of France, EVE OUT OF HER RUINS is a harrowing account of the violent reality of life in her native country by the figurehead of Mauritian literature.

The book features an original introduction by Nobel Prize winner J.M.G. Le Clezio, who declares Devi “a truly great writer.”
