The Indies at the end of the XIXth century. Above the river, amid the huts that are linked by bamboo footbridges, swarms a miserable people that live from what they find.

And it is there, in the empire of a grimacing jade figure, that strange events will take place… Completed with an introduction giving unpublished texts and sketches, this complete edition constitutes the definitive edition of ‘Piège Malais’.
