Seychellois author presents novel to Seychelles High Commissioner and Seychelles Tourist Office in London

Seychellois author presents novel to Seychelles High Commissioner and Seychelles Tourist Office in London ( Seychellois author Rosie Tirant last week visited the Seychelles High Commission and Seychelles Tourist Office in London where she presented a copy of her new novel to the two offices.

Ms. Tirant, who lives in the United Kingdom, said she hoped that her book could be used to complement all the marketing work that the country is doing to promote the destination.

Her first presentation was with the Seychelles Tourist Office whereby the Regional Manager for UK and Ireland, Ms. Tinaz Wadia, accepted the book from her in the presence of staff of the office.

She then presented a copy of the book to the Seychelles High Commissioner in UK, Mrs. Marie-Pierre Lloyd.

The novel, entitled “Echoes from the Oasis,” and which is based in Seychelles starting in 1912, came out in May this year. Ms. Tirant said that even if her work is fiction, the life of Seychelles back then – the beauty of the islands, the culture, history, and connections with the rest of the outside world – are very prominently featured.

“’Echoes from the Oasis’ sets the foundations and shows what life was like for all islanders, women in particular. No matter their status or wealth, it is the women who forms the backbone of this story,” she explained, adding, “This period in our history comes to life, as the joys and struggles plays out, entwined into a family saga-cum-romance under the tropical sun.”

Both High Commissioner Lloyd and Ms. Wadia thanked Ms. Tirant for her book and for supporting the country with such a novel, which depicts life on the islands in the early 1900s.

Mrs. Tirant also forwarded a copy of her new book to Minister Alain St.Ange, the Seychelles Minister responsible for Tourism and Culture, and the Minister confirmed that the book does credit to the beauty of the Seychelles and also life on the islands. “I thoroughly enjoyed reading the book and would recommend it as being a good read," Minister St.Ange said.
