About this title:

Synopsis: Banned in 2008 by the Sudanese authorities, this novel now appears in French. Endangered in his own country where corruption, war, and arbitrary are the rule, Noureddine is about to leave a dictatorship governed by His Excellency the Honorable Infallible and his mentor, Abu Sharaye Al-Wawi. In the hall of the airport, Noureddine observes his compatriots and remembers the many horror scenes he has seen himself or he has heard about. He also recalls the strange career of His Excellency the Honorable Infallible, his methods of government and the hagiographical legends surrounding his personality. Though the Great Nation is never overtly quoted, the author, who originates from Darfur, denounces the policy of ethnic cleansing perpetrated in his country. It is a testimony from inside made by a committed intellectual, written in a style, which mixes realism and metaphor, poetry and hardship.

About the Author: Yagoub Adam Saed Al-Nour is a Sudanese author from Darfur. He has written several short stories and poems, as well as two novels, The Revenge of the Prey and The Abandoned Dream and the Bitter Autumn. Translator Xavier Luffin teaches Arabic language and literature at the Free University of Brussels. He has translated several literary works from Arabic into French.
