1st Anniversary Special avec Tessa Naime (4/4) Tim Tim? Bwa Fik!

Yé Moun La ! Pour célébrer le premier anniversaire de "Tim Tim? Bwa Fik!", j'ai réalisé une série spéciale de 4 épisodes pour faire une mise à jour sur les projets des invitées de la saison 1. Pour l'ultime volet, je vous propose le premier épisode en français qui est une discussion avec l'autrice guadeloupéenne Tessa Naime. Notre échange porte  sur la représentation de la masculinité et de la féminité, sur la finalité de la littérature caribéenne, sur notre rapport au monde de l’édition, sur notre volonté d’affirmer notre identité guadeloupéenne et sur Maryse Condé. Bonne écoute ! *** Eugenia O’Neal: vintage.caribbean  Joanne C.
