From 1815, the year of his defeat at Waterloo, to 1821, the year of his death, Napoleon was exiled, a prisoner of the British on Saint Helena, an island beyond time, off the coast of Africa. This work chronicles the author's journey to Saint Helena, moving back and forth between the contemporary island and the nineteenth-century island on which Napoleon languished. Translated into English from the French by Patricia Clancy.
