Abstract [en]

With her second novel, just published by Gallimard, Gaëlle Bélem takes the reader into the history of Reunion Island, long known as Bourbon Island. With her highly precise style, she follows in the footsteps of the slave Edmond Albius, who discovered the secret of making vanilla by fertilizing the stamen with the pistil. Indeed, how could a slave be the inventor of an enigma prized by the world’s powerful leaders?
