17.8 x 11.1 x 2 CM La femme sans sépulture, c'est Zoulikha, héroïne oubliée de la guerre d'Algérie, montée au maquis au printemps 1957 et portée disparue deux ans plus tard, après son arrestation par l'armée française. Femme exceptionnelle, si vivante dans sa réalité de mère, d'amante, d'amie, d'opposante politique, dans son engagement absolu et douloureux, dans sa démarche de liberté qui scelle sa vie depuis l'enfance et qui ne l'a jamais quittée, sa présence irradiante flotte à jamais au-dessus de Césarée... Autour de Zoulikha s'animent d'autres figures de l'ombre, paysannes autant que citadines, vivant au quotidien l'engagement, la peur, la tragédie parfois. Véritable chant d'amour contre l'oubli et la haine, de ce passé ressuscité naît une émotion intense, pour ce destin de femme qui garde son énigme, et pour la beauté d'une langue qui excelle à rendre son ombre et sa lumière.

About the Author:

Assia Djebar is considered as a major woman writer in Maghreb. By the time she was thirty, she had written four novels in French. In 1962, she abandoned fiction writing in French and devoted herself the teaching history at the University of Algiers. During the ensuing twelve years, she tried to tackle the problem of the transition from writing in French to writing in Arabic. She found a partial solution to this problem in the cinema with her film La Nouba des femmes du Mont Chenoua, which was awarded the Critic's Prize at the Venice Biennal 1979. In 1980 Assia published a volume of short stories dealing with the lives of contemporary urban Algerian women: Femmes d'Alger dans leur appartemen. Assia Djebar's work has been known to the English reader primarily through the translation of her first novel La Soif (1957) under the title of The Mischief. L'amour, la fantasia, translated as Fantasia: an Algerian Cavalcade was published in 1985.
