Maudit soit le jour [Cursed be the day]. Abidjan: NEI, 2000 (144p.) Novel. ISBN: 2 84487 33 3.
Preoccupied with the condition of children in the wars which proliferate throughout the world and more particularly in African, Gâce-Emmanuelle Peh seeks to analyse the situation and translate the thoughts of one of those at the centre of a conflict who have been stripped of their most basic human rights. Josuah's outlook on life could be that of any child of his age, anywhere in the world. It represents a questioning and a quest for a world that is more just and more reassuring; one which is an encouragement to all the resolute participants in this quest, so much so, that it is true that goodwill is an indispensable component for the creation of world of peace.
