Women of Algiers in their apartment by Assia Djebar( Book )

93 editions published between 1980 and 2015 in 5 languages and held by 1,334 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Translated for the first time into English, this collection of short fiction by one of the leading writers of North Africa details the plight of Algerian women and raises far-reaching issues that speak to us all. Women of Algiers quickly sold out its first printing of 15,000 in France and was hugely popular in Italy, but the book was denounced in Algeria for its criticism of the postcolonial socialist regime, which denied and subjugated women even as it celebrated the liberation of men. It was the first work to do so openly. These stylistically innovative, lyrical stories address the cloistering of women, the implications of reticence, and the significance of language and its connection to oppression (Djebar calls official Arabic "an authoritarian language that is simultaneously the language of men"). Mixing newly written pieces with older ones, Djebar attempts "to bring the past into a dialogue with the present". The stories raise issues surrounding this passage from colonial to postcolonial culture - national literature, cultural authenticity, and the impact of war on both men and women. The book's title comes from a Delacroix painting that depicts a unique glimpse of the harem, an emblem of the dual violation of Algerian women, both colonial and gendered

The tongue's blood does not run dry : Algerian stories by Assia Djebar( Book )

34 editions published between 1997 and 2010 in 7 languages and held by 689 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Foreigners both in their home and homeland, the people in these stories search for meaning in hospitals, in homes, in family, in graves. Caught most symbolically in the crossfire lie the bodies, minds, and lives of women. A French woman is renamed in order to be buried beside her Algerian husband. Another returns to her tumultuous country of birth and is haunted by vivid childhood memories of her martyred parents. With the will to justly carry divergent loyalties, the characters in these stories prove how the force of the human heart can never be confined by any geographic border."--BOOK JACKET
L'amour, la fantasia : roman by Assia Djebar( Book )

81 editions published between 1985 and 2015 in 5 languages and held by 681 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Un beau livre, entre France et Algérie, écrit dans un français somptueux. L'Amour, la fantasia est un livre sur l'amour. Celui du corps et de la langue. Mais cet amour n'est jamais nommé.

Children of the New World : a novel of the Algerian War by Assia Djebar( Book )

41 editions published between 1962 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 650 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The internationally acclaimed writer Assia Djebar portrays the interlocking lives of women and men in an Algerian mountain town, plunged into a protracted anti-colonial struggle against France in the 1950s. Children of the New World, written one year before Algerian independence, reveals the escalating conflict from the perspectives of a variety of characters - traditional wives, radicalized students, and political organizers. In the novel, the desperate conflict transforms women's lives, drawing them inexorably from the private world of the home into a war for their community's liberation"--
Fantasia, an Algerian cavalcade by Assia Djebar( Book )

12 editions published between 1985 and 1993 in English and held by 538 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this stunning novel, Assia Djebar intertwines the history of her native Algeria with episodes from the life of a young girl in a story stretching from the French conquest in 1830 to the War of Liberation of the 1950s. The girl, growing up in the old Roman coastal town of Cherchel, sees her life in contrast to that of a neighboring French family, and yearns for more than law and tradition allow her to experience. Headstrong and passionate, she escapes from the cloistered life of her family to join her brother in the maquis' fight against French domination. Djebar's exceptional descriptive powers bring to life the experiences of girls and women caught up in the dual struggle for independence—both their own and Algeria's

Loin de Médine : filles d'Ismaël : roman by Assia Djebar( Book )

34 editions published between 1991 and 2009 in French and Dutch and held by 370 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Algérienne, considérée aujourd'hui comme l'un des écrivains les plus importants du Maghreb, Assia Djebar nous transporte à Médine, à la mort du Prophète. Et c'est des femmes qu'elle nous parle, nombreuses et influentes dans l'entourage du fondateur de l'Islam, où se déchaînent déjà des intrigues et des rivalités de succession. Nous découvrons les figures d'une histoire ignorée, oubliée : reines de tribus, prophétesses, femmes chefs de guerre dans une Arabie en effervescence. Fatima, fille du Prophète, fière et indomptable, se dresse en Antigone arabe, tandis qu'Aicha, sa jeune veuve, s'installe dans son rôle de "diseuse de mémoire". Bien d'autres encore, femmes de La Mecque, affranchies, errantes, mêlent leurs voix et se souviennent. -- Back cover
