Finally in English, Island of Shattered Dreams is the first ever novel by an indigenous Tahitian writer. In a lyrical and immensely moving style, this book combines a family saga and a doomed love story, set against the background of French Polynesia in the period leading up to t...he first nuclear tests. The text is highly critical of the French government, and as a result its publication in Tahiti was polarising.
