Flame Tree Lane/Lenpas Flanbwayan
Dev Virahsawmy is a prolific Mauritian author who has also been active in politics, pedagogy and in promoting Mauritian Creole (Morisien). His literary works include the award-winning play, Li, and Toufann, the acclaimed adaptation of The Tempest. Lenpas Flanbwayan appears here in print for the first time, accompanied by a translation into English by Shawkat M. Toorawa. Like much of Virahsawmy's oeuvre, this novella engages with questions such as economic development, environmental stewardship, political will, and social justice and inequality. The book opens with a Foreword by noted scholar Francoise Lionnet and closes with a bibliography of Virahsawmy's literary works prepared by Toorawa.
