    About The Book

    The first-person narrative of a savant slave, Patricia Eakins’s The Marvelous Adventures of Pierre Baptiste is one of the most imaginative novels in many years. From the opening pages, the reader is swept up by the linguistic fireworks of Eakins’s autodidactic protagonist as he recounts “the tribulations of bondage in the sugar isles,” his escape and how he was marooned, and his subsequent trials and adventures. Making expert use of historical convention and with an ear for rhetorical authenticity, Eakins has given us a compelling novel that bridges not only human cultures but the chasm between human and animal.

    Here then is the account of the life and times of an African man of letters “whose ambitions were realized in strange and unexpected ways, yet who made peace with several gods and established a realm of equality & freedom & bounty in which no creature lives from another’s labor.” Pierre Baptiste emerges as an embodiment of all that is lost in a racist culture.
