Chosen Place, Timeless People (69 Edition)by Paule Marshall
Synopses & ReviewsPlease note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.
The chosen place is Bourneville, a remote, devastated part of a Caribbean island; the timeless people are its inhabitants--black, poor, inextricably linked to their past enslavement. When the advance team for an ambitious American research project arrives, the tense, ambivalent relationships that evolve — between natives and foreigners, blacks and whites, haves and have-nots — keenly dramatize the vicissitudes of power.
