A “touching, furious, sharp, and very funny” novel of an immigrant teenage girl finding her own identity in France (Booklist). The Paradise projects are only a few metro stops from Paris, but it feels like a different world. Doria’s father, aka the Beard, has headed back to their hometown in Morocco, leaving her and her mom to cope with their mektoub, their destiny, alone. They have a little help—from a social worker sent by the city, a psychiatrist sent by the school, and a thug friend who recites Rimbaud. It seems like fate has dealt them an impossible hand, but Doria might still make a new life—“with bravado, humor, and a healthy dose of rage” (St. Petersburg Times). “[A] sassy, spunky tale . . . Doria has what it takes to storm any barricade.” —The Hartford Courant “[Doria is] as likable as Holden Caulfield or Prep’s Lee Fiora. Readers will cheer. Highly recommended.” —Library Journal, starred review “A promising addition to the world’s literary voices.” —The Miami Herald “Moving and irreverent, sad and funny, full of rage and intelligence. Her voice is fresh, and her book a delight.” —Laila Lalami, bestselling author of The Moor’s Account

Branding the Beur Author focuses on the mainstream media promotion of literature written by the descendants of North African immigrants to France (often called beurs). These conversations between journalists and 'beur' authors delve into contemporary debates such as the explosion of racism in the 1980s and the purported role of Islam in French society in the 1990s. But the interests of journalists looking for sensational subject matter also heavily shape the promotion and reception of these novels: only the 'beur' authors who employ a realist style to write about the challenges faced by the North African immigrant population in France - and who engage on-air with French identity politics and immigration - receive multiple invitations to participate in interviews. Previous scholarship has taken a necessary first step by analyzing the social and political stakes of this literature (using labels such as 'beur' and/or 'banlieue,' to designate its urban, economically distressed setting), but the book argues that we must move beyond this approach because it reproduces the selection criteria deployed by the media that determine which books receive the most commercial and critical support. By demonstrating how minority-based literary labels such as 'francophone' and 'postcolonial' are always already defined by the socio-political context in which books are published and promoted, the book establishes that these labels are tautological and cannot reflect the thematic and stylistic richness of beur (and other minority) production in France.

لم تكن "صباح الخير أيها الحزن" رواية تقليدية على الإطلاق، وذلك لظروف كتابتها ولطبيعة موضوعها، فهي من جهة تدور في عالم المراهقين راصدة تقلبه واضطرابه، بسلاسة ودون النظرة الفوقية والتنظيرات المعقدة التي يمكن أن تصدر عن الكتاب الأكبر سنا، ومن جهة أخرى تتجاوز الرواية أحداثها لتكشف مع آخر عبارة فيها الستار عن تقييم خفي بين السطور للحياة العابثة في المجتمع الفرنسي البرجوازي. وبهذه الرواية شكلت فرانسواز ساجان ظاهرة فريدة في الأدب الفرنسي والعالمي، بما أثارته الرواية من موجات انتقاد وتجريح من ناحية، وتشجيع ومديح من ناحية أخرى ، وأصبحت بعدها من أشهر الروائيين في فرنسا وأيضا في العالم، خصوصا بعد ترجمة روايتها للكثير من اللغات ومنها العربية.

"Home" is a contested notion in contemporary literary and cultural studies, as critics assess the impact of empire, independence, migration and globalization upon colonial and postcolonial subjects. This volume assembles articles on the representation of home specifically in women's autobiography, which is now one of the most exciting and productive fields of literary studies. The chapters analyze writing from diverse areas of the Francophone world, including North Africa, Sub-Saharan Africa, the Caribbean and Indo-China, in addition to focussing on works by immigrant writers in France. The volume investigates the importance and the nuances of the construction of "home" in narratives of female identity in different contexts. This timely book includes original analyses by a range of scholars and studies both established writers, such as Maryse Condé, Marguerite Duras and Marie Cardinal, and newer voices such as Fatou Diome, Faïza Guène and Hélène Grimaud. Gender and Displacement: The Representation of Home in Francophone Women's Autobiography thus brings new understandings to the connections between race, gender, colonization and migration in female identity in diverse spaces.

A novel of a twentysomething, Algerian-born woman living on the edge in France, from “one of the hottest literary talents of multicultural Europe” (Sunday Telegraph). When Ahlème’s mother was killed in a village massacre, she left Algeria for France with her father and brother and never returned. Now, more than a decade later, she is practically French, yet in many ways she remains an outsider. Ahlème’s dreams for a better life have been displaced by the harsh realities she faces every day. Her father is unable to work after an accident at his construction site and her brother boils over with adolescent energy, teetering dangerously close to choosing a life of crime. As a temporary resident, Ahlème could at any moment be sent back to a village and a life that are now more foreign than Paris. In Some Dream for Fools, Faïza Guène explores the disparity between the expectations and limitations of immigrant life in the West and tells a remarkable story of one woman’s courage to dream. “With a keen eye for detail and a sharp narrative tone, [Guène] gives voice to a hurt too long unrecognized. . . . [She] takes us into another world—a world that no nation today can afford to ignore.” —The Christian Science Monitor

صُدِم ألبرتو مانغويل، وهو يقرأ رواية «تجاذبات انتقائية» لغوته، خلال سفره في كالاغاري، بمدى ما كانت هذه الرواية تعكس الشواش الاجتماعي للعالم الذي كان يعيش فيه. يمكن لمقطع في الرواية أن يُلمِع على نحوٍ مفاجئ مقالاً في صحيفة يوميّة، وقد تُحرّض كلمةٌ واحدة تفكيراً طويلاً. قرّر أن يحتفظ بسجلٍ لهذه اللحظات، أن يعيد قراءة كتابٍ كل شهر، وأن يصيغ «يوميات القراءة»: كتاباً من الملاحظات، من انطباعات عن السفر، عن الأصدقاء، عن الأحداث العامة والخاصة، مستخلصة كلّها عبر قراءاته. من «دون كيشوت» إلى «جزيرة الدكتور مورو» إلى «كيم» يقودنا مانغويل في مغامرةٍ ساحرة في الأدب وفي الحياة، ويبرهن لنا كيف أنّهما، وبكلّ ما تعني العبارة من معنى، غير قابلين للانفصال بالنسبة لقارئٍ شغوف.
