Summary
  • "En bordure du bois de Vincennes, non loin de l'ancien palais des Colonies devenu le Musée de l'histoire de l'immigration, se cache un jardin méconnu. L'atmosphère de ses ruines gagnées par la végétation tient à son histoire. Créé à la Belle Époque pour perfectionner l'agronomie coloniale, il est rapidement devenu la vitrine de l'Empire. C'est aussi là qu'a été construite la première mosquée de France. Un écrivain désireux d'y trouver l'inspiration pour un roman d'aventure s'y fait accompagner par un jeune chercheur en histoire. Tous deux partent sur les traces du fantasque fondateur du jardin, l'explorateur Jean Thadée Dybowski. Leur promenade est l'occasion d'un vagabondage érudit et amusé dans ces lieux où se déchiffrent encore l'histoire coloniale et sa représentation. Elle est aussi le moyen d'une interrogation sur cette mémoire plus que jamais brûlante. Et si nos peurs, comme nos nostalgies, n'étaient qu'affaire de décor ?"--Page 4 of cover
  • The writer Thomas B. Reverdy and the historian Sylvain Venayre have mixed their writings, not for an essay but for a fictional novel. In Paris, on the edge of the Bois de Vincennes, not far from the former Palais des Colonies, which has become the Museum of the History of Immigration, hides a little-known garden. The atmosphere of its ruins gained by the vegetation is due to its history. Created in the Belle Epoque to perfect colonial agronomy, it quickly became the showcase of the Empire. It was also here that the first mosque in France was built--Translation of page 4 of cover by http://www.mucem.org/programme/le-jardin-des-colonies
