This is a wonderful translation of a romantic novel based on the reality of Algerian history, the transition from French colonialism to independence and the complexity of loss for the many generations of French settlers and their associates, many of whom were also Islamic Arabs. It brings to life the reasons why injustice and too great inequality can lead to disaster. Khadra is a poet, as well as philosopher and sensitive observer of society and human nature.
