Abstract

Guedj presents a unique perspective into the every-day life of a French family in Algeria before, during, and after the Algerian War (1954–62) in her French-language autobiography. She evokes nostalgia for the Algeria before the war — its cinema, its theater, even its excesses — and presents firsthand accounts of the interactions between Algerian Arabs and Jews as well as the inescapable, profound impact of French culture and language on the people.
