Alice Zeniter

Alice Zeniter made her debut at the age of sixteen with the novel Deux Moins Un Egal Zéro (Two minus one equals zero). Since that time, she has written a play and three novels, all of which have won awards. Her background with an Algerian father and French mother often acts as a backdrop to her writing, as in her second novel Take this Man (Jusque Dans nos Bras) (2012) , where she tells the story of a marriage of convenience between two childhood friends to prevent one of them being deported. Her latest release L’Art de Perdre (The art of losing) is a multi-generation novel that follows Algeria's colonial past and its effect on our contemporary era. We are talking about a master work that seeks to explain international politics through individual destinies. Based on the reception the book has received at home and abroad, we really have something to enjoy!
