This chapter presents extracts from the works of Jacqueline Sénès, Jean Vanmai, Catherine Régen, Ismet Kurtovitch, Claudine Jacques, and Alban Bensa. Among these are Sénès' Terre violente (Violent land, 1987), which sketches out the dramatic history of the colony through the fortunes of the pioneering Sutton family; Vanmai's historical fiction Pilou-Pilou: Chapeaux de paille (Pilou-Pilou: Straw hats, 1998), the first volume of a trilogy that puts the writer into the skin of deportees; and Régent's popular historical romance, Justine ou un amour de chapeau de paille (Justine or in love with a straw hat, 1995), the story of an impossible love affair between the daughter of a colonial dignitary and a “straw-hat”—a convict and her father's house servant, deported for murdering the man who raped his sister.

Keywords:   Jacqueline Sénès, Jean Vanmai, Catherine Régen, Ismet Kurtovitch, Claudine Jacques, Alban Bensa, New Caledonia
