Stevenson under the Palm Trees

Alberto Manguel

NOVEL. CANONGATE, 2002. 112 PAGES.

Robert Louis Stevenson is enjoying life on the humid, colourful island of Samoa until rape, murder and the appearance of his doppelgänger, Mr. Baker, change everything.

With this playful homage to Stevenson´s life and work, Manguel weaves an intoxicating tale in which dreams mingle with consciousness and repressed desires take shape, where stories become reality and storytellers merge with their own creations.
