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!
