Narrative works by second-generation Maghrebis in France, popularly known as Beurs, are a vibrant part of the rapidly growing field of post-colonial literature. This expanded and updated edition of Alec Hargreaves' ground-breaking study combines careful analysis of the formal structures of Beur fiction with a wealth of insights derived from interviews with the authors and extensive access to unpublished writings.
First published in hardback in 1991, the book is now being produced in paperback to cater for the high level of interest expressed in the hardback edition.
