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 the first nuclear tests.

The text is highly critical of the French government, and as a result its publication in Tahiti was polarising.

Finally in English, Island of Shattered Dreams was the first-ever novel written by an indigenous Tahitian writer.
