Dion Graham provides a soothing and contemplative narrative voice for the imagined story of Frantz Fanon, who fought for Algeria’s independence from the French in the 1950s and wrote several seminal works on colonialism. Difficult issues such as racism and the violence of the Algerian resistance to French occupation are part of the story of this philosopher, psychiatrist, revolutionary, and author. Graham capably navigates this multilayered text, a fictionalized reconstruction of Fanon's life and work told through three different, complicated narratives. The dreamy quality in Graham's voice establishes the right tone for this volume, which reads as an intertwined personal memoir and factual biography, as well as a metaphysical work on the nature of fiction.
