About the Author

Boualem Sansal is the Arab world's most courageous and controversial novelist. His first novel to appear in English (An Unfinished Business/The German Mujahid, Bloomsbury/Europa) was the first work of fiction by an Arab writer to acknowledge the Holocaust in print. He started writing novels at the age of 50, shortly after retiring as a high-ranking official in the Algerian government. He was awarded the prestigious Prix du Roman Arabe in 2012, and the German Peace Prize in 2011.

Reviews

Praise for 2084: The End of the World "2084 is a powerful novel that celebrates resistance." -The Guardian ""A powerful satire on an Islamist dictatorship." -The Spectator "Sharply satiric...it's worthwhile watching Sansal dig fiercely into the essence of the all-controlling religious belief he roundly condemns." -Library Journal "Alison Anderson's deft and intelligent translation of 2084 helps to overcome such binary thinking by conveying Sansal's abhorrence of a system that controls people's minds, while explaining that the religion was not originially evil but has been corrupted. A moving and cautionary story." -Kate Webb, The Times Literary Supplement "2084 is a rare, powerful book, at the intersection of fable and lampoon, of satire and science fiction." -Lire "The story is powerful, the humor, devastating . . . 2084 is an exceptional book." -Telerama "Boualem Sansal is of the great voices of North Africa." -Le Monde Cultures et Idees "2084 is noir fiction a la Orwell." -Le Monde "Sansal is our guide into absurdity and out of it, the perfect guide through the fear and laughter we expend reading 2084." -The Rain Taxi Review
