Travels with Tooy
University of Chicago Press

This chapter describes Tooy's house in Cayenne, French Guiana. Tooy lives at the edge of the city where Cayenne meets the forest. He has lived in this spot for almost twenty years, since the government drained the mangrove swamp on which it sits. This chapter also describes the place of treatment in Tooy's house. He is visited by clients from different countries and the consultations are more about physical ailment or a problem with a job, a lover, or a spouse. This chapter also discusses Tooy's story about a possession god called Flibanti.
