In the nonfiction monograph "Marianne," Diome, migrant to France, and author of many novels, including the best-selling "Le ventre de l'Atlantique" (translated, "The Belly of the Atlantic") successfully adapts her trademark fictional themes and methods to denounce French "assimiliationism" and to champion the multicultural state.
