  • Maryse Condé is the Grande Dame of Caribbean Literature
  • Maryse was awarded the Alternative Nobel Prize in 2018, when the Nobel Prize in Literature was suspended, and received the Grand-Croix de l’Ordre national du Mérite from President Emmanuel Macron in 2020
  • This is the third book we are publishing by Maryse Condé. Her previous titles The Wondrous and Tragic Life of Ivan and Ivana and Waiting for the Waters to Rise have received multiple awards and been World Editions bestsellers
  • Her 2021 title Waiting for the Waters to Rise was longlisted for the 2021 National Book Award in Translated Literature and received an English PEN award. The book was selected for inclusion in the International Fiction Shortlist by the NYT, and as a Best Book of 2021 by the Financial Times
  • Both previous titles of Maryse Condé have been reviewed in the NYT. Waiting for the Waters to Rise was reviewed on NPR and the review syndicated. The title was briefly out of stock less than a month after publication, due to overwhelming interest and an explosion of orders
  • Both NPR and the NYT have called Condé a “literary giant,” comparable to Aimé Césaire, Jacques Roumain, Ousmane Sembène, Mahmoud Darwish, and Derek Walcott
  • In The Gospel According to the New World a miracle baby is born on Easter Sunday, rumored to be the child of god. Many signs throughout his life will cause this theory to gain ground. The novel follows his journey from one community to another search of his origins and his mission
