A Rendezvous in Haiti 电子书 图书描述

From Publishers Weekly This slim, powerful tale places Becker (The Chinese Bandit, The Blue-Eyed Shan firmly in the tradition of Conrad, Greene and le Carre. Lt. Robert MacAllister of the U.S. Marines is in Haiti in 1919 to help quell a peasant revolution led by the black leader Martel. Caroline Barbour, a colonel's daughter in love with MacAllister, is kidnapped by Martel's white military leader, Blanchard, who reveals himself and his past to her on their long journey to Martel's village. MacAllister also is traveling to the village, led by the black priest Scarron. Convinced that Blanchard is dangerous to his efforts, Martel agrees to let MacAllister murder the white revolutionary and take the girl back to Port-au-Prince. Both Blanchard and Martel are killed, while Caroline is left unharmed but not untoucheda condition Becker's readers will share. As vivid and steamy as the climate of Haiti, this tale stakes out its true domain in the landscape of the soul. With stunning clarity, Becker examines his characters' shifting emotional allegiances as the yawning chasms between powerful and powerless, black and white, civilized and primitive, are bridged in a network of individual attachments and understandings. Copyright 1987 Reed Business Information, Inc. From Library Journal Two men, allies in World War I, find themselves on opposite sides in an attempted Haitian revolution. They are more than just enemies: The renegade Blanchard kidnaps Caroline, McAllister's fiance. The mission to rescue her, headed by McAllister and a local Haitian priest, is successful. Or is it? Caroline's experiences increase her understanding of the Haitians and create feelings of attraction, compassion, and loathing for the mercenary Blanchard. By providing contrasting cultural perspectives, this novel communicates some of the ethos of the Haitian culture and develops the intrigue, adventure, and romance that are the book's success. Disappointingly, it does not probe more deeply into significant questions concerning cultural biases that are briefly raised. For large collections. Andrew Peters, Pioneer Multi-Cty. Lib., Norman, Okla.Copyright 1987 Reed Business Information, Inc.
