Sleevenotes for The Sound of the Moon



Martinique writer Patrick Chamoiseau says of his book

Strange Words, in which he re-tells Creole folk tales,

that they are to be read only at night because he wrote

them with the moon as his sole companion.

Some of these songs were written early in the morning

with the winter moon still in the sky.

Some were written late at night with the moon so bright it dazzles.

Sometimes it was hidden behind the big, heavy, English rain clouds

but always there.


Torch songs, blue jazz, country laments …

all can cast a spell with little sister neon.

O but with a beautiful moon are narcotic.
