About the Author

Nina Bouraoui was born in Rennes, France, to an Algerian father and a French mother. Shortly thereafter, she moved with her family to Algiers, where she lived until the age of thirteen. Bouraoui received the literary prize Prix du Livre Inter in 1991 and the Prix Renaudot in 2005. Marjorie Attignol Salvodon is an assistant professor of French at Suffolk University. Jehanne-Marie Gavarini is an associate professor of art at the University of Massachusetts, Lowell, and a visiting scholar at the Women's Studies Research Center at Brandeis University.


"Bouraoui's quiet and inwardly focused coming-of-age novel delves deeply into intimate questions of self-definition - and ultimately the urge to become a writer." Publishers Weekly Praise for the original French Garcon manque: "Painful, enlightening, fascinating, impossible, yet very real... It is these visceral feelings experienced by almost everyone of double nationality that Nina Bouraoui so masterfully expresses through her highly sensual and incantatory writing." Melissa Marus, World Liteature Today
