Voices from Madagascar Voix de Madagascar · An Anthology of Contemporary Francophone Literature/Anthologie de littérature francophone contemporaine
Edited by Jacques Bourgeacq and Liliane Ramarosoa

There is currently in Madagascar a rich literary production (short stories, poetry, novels, plays) that has not yet reached the United States for lack of diffusion outside the country. Until recently, Madagascar suffered from political isolation resulting from its breakup with France in the 1970s and the eighteen years of Marxism that followed.

“There is currently a Madagascan boom in literary production—short stories, novels, plays—that has not yet reached the United States. Voices from Madagascar brings a wide selection of these texts, both in French and English, to the North American public for the first time.”
