Synopsis

Eve out of Her Ruins is a heartbreaking look at the dark corners of the island nation of Mauritius that tourists never see, and a poignant exploration of lives at the margins of society. Published in the UK for the first time, this celebrated novel won the 2006 Prix des cinq continents de la Francophonie.



Ananda Devi is a Mauritian and French author born in 1957 in Mauritius. Displaying a prodigious writing talent, Devi won her first literary prize at the age of fifteen for a short story in a Radio France Internationale competition. She has published eleven novels as well as short stories and poetry, and was featured at the PEN World Voices Festival in New York in 2015. Her literary awards include the Prix des Cinq Continents de la Francophonie (2006) and Prix Television Suisse Romande (2007) for "Eve de ses decombres", the Prix Louis-Guilloux (2010), the Prix Mokanda (2012). In 2010 Devi was made a Chevalier des Arts et des Lettres by the French government and in 2014 she was awarded the Prix du Rayonnement de la langue et de la litterature francaises by the Academie Francaise. After a few years spent in Congo-Brazzaville, Devi moved to Ferney-Voltaire in Switzerland in 1989.

Staff Choice

Not since Han Kang’s The Vegetarian have I been so impressed by a novelist’s ability to marry brutality with beauty. Eve out of her Ruins is a violent yet tender hymn to those on the margins of Mauritian society, a lyrical meditation upon identity and the body. Books this extraordinary are a rarity to be savoured.
