Product Description

It's mid-twentieth century when two New Caledonian men contract leprosy and reflect on what they call their 'life sentence', but when a cure is discovered they realise it wasn't the end of life after all. And in today's New Caledonia, an indigenous woman tolerates her alcoholic husband until his behaviour affects their child. She considers leaving but a charity, the Blue Cross, offers to help him. Condamne a perpetuite raconte l’histoire d’un homme atteint de la lepre. Et dans La Croix bleue, l’auteure aborde le theme de l’alcoolisme. Deux textes forts, pleins de sensibilite qui se terminent par une note d’espoir.
