While stowed away on a transatlantic freighter, Lafala is discovered and locked away in an icy-cold closet, resulting in the loss of his frostbitten legs. When his successful lawsuit against the shipping company brings big bucks, Lafala returns to Marseille to resume his affair with Aslima, a Moroccan prostitute. With its scenes of black bodies seeking pleasure and fighting for freedom even when stolen, shipped, and sold for parts, Romance in Marseille explores the heritage of slavery amid a predatory modern economy.

Claude McKay's poetry was one of the great forces in bringing about what is often called the 'Negro Literary Renaissance' -- James Weldon Johnson I loved Claude McKay's Romance in Marseille, so witty and so precise, a little instrument for imagining another kind of modernist history -- Adam Thirlwell * The White Review *
