Naivo


Naivoharisoa Patrick Ramamonjisoa, who goes by the pen name Naivo, has worked as a journalist in his home country of Madagascar and as a teacher in Paris. His first novel, Beyond the Rice Fields, describes the violent cultural clash and mass killings that arose in the early 19th century Madagascar in reaction to the arrival of British missionaries and the rise of Christianity. Beyond the Rice Fields is the first Malagasy novel ever translated into English. He lives in Ottawa, Canada.
