Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Nedjma is a masterpiece of North African writing. Its intricateplot involves four men in love with the beautiful woman whose name serves as thetitle of the novel. Nedjma is the central figure of this disorienting novel, butmore than the unfortunate wife of a man she does not love, more than the unwillingcause of rivalry among many suitors, Nedjma is the symbol of Algeria. Kateb hascrafted a novel that is the saga of the founding ancestors of Algeria through theconquest of Numidia by the Romans, the expansion of the Ottoman Empire, and Frenchcolonial conquest. Nedjma is symbolic of the rich and sometimes bloody past ofAlgeria, of its passions, of its tenderness; it is the epic story of a human questfor freedom and happiness.
