The colour from the earth - Régine Detambel

"But when Peter the Yogi boarded his shell as if on a lotus, then eight or nine thousand blue Morphos rushed to his chest to adore him, and he allowed himself to be caressed by their flow, their flux, rolled in their colour as in an extraordinary animal skin."

Fifty years after the closure of the prison, an extravagant story decides a journalist to go to Guyana. That of Pierre, an enlightened convict, capable of charming blue butterflies, sitting cross-legged on an ammonite, and who will eventually disappear, absorbed by the earth. "The most beautiful case of escape since the prison was a prison. What is this stone of a thousand colours capable of giving freedom? In a country marked by death and oblivion, a journalist sets out to meet the descendants of convicts who can shed light on the subject.
