Since last week, our colleague Adam was encouraging you to read or reread the writers of Negritude, we thought it would make sense to look at the major publications that have celebrated the return of the great African utopia, launched by the blattering success of Felwin Sarr's Afrotopia.

In honor of Black History Month, and in light of Fanon's regular success at Albertine, I thought it would be a worthwhile exercise to bring up some classic but lesser-known thinkers that formed his intellectual universe--particularly, the loose band of authors from the Caribbean and West Africa that formed a movement called Négritude.

uch ink has been spilled this year on the milieu of French publishing and its practices from another era. In the beginning of this year, the publication of the memoirs of Ivan Nabokov--a flamboyant editor who has been a driving force in the success of foreign literature in France --has somewhat rebranded the world of French letters, evoking it as…

There are novels that we read for pleasure, almost without even realizing we are reading them--stories in which we find a vague echo of our everyday lives, our past, and the times around us. Books that gently shake us but while always giving us a flattering reflection of ourselves. Reading a novel by Marie NDiaye is an entirely other experience;…
