Lettres à Mon Pays, L'Ile de Madagascar : Mais où est-il parti ce meilleur de nous-mêmes? is a compilation of what Jean Razafindambo, a former Journalist from Madagascar, has written about the country since 2002. These texts were originally written for a Malagasy newspaper (L'Express de Madagascar) and published as reader's letters.
An essay that combines narrative and theory. On the one hand, the "tsiny" ("censorship" or "blame"), a kind of punishment for those who violate the rules and customs that command Malagasy life. On the other, the "tody" ("Return" or "retaliation"), the eternal return of what we did and that expresses both in the disease in the disaster. In French.
