Memory in the Flesh (Paperback)

Unavailable. No reason given.


This prize-winning novel; the first to be written by an Algerian woman in Arabic, is set against Algeria's struggle against foreign domination as well as its post-independence struggle with itself and the fate of revolutionary ideals in a post-revolutionary society. The story, spanning more than four decades of Algerian history, from the 1940s to the 1980s, revolves around a love affair between Khaled, the middle-aged militant, and Hayat, the writer and daughter of his friend, all brilliantly told through Khaled's voice.
