Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Internationally acclaimed novelist, scholar, poet, and filmmaker Assia Djebar presents a brutal yet delicate exposition of how warring worlds enact their battles upon women’s lives and bodies.

Foreigners both in their home and homeland, the people in these stories search for authenticity in hospitals, in homes, in family, in graves. Caught most symboli-cally in the crossfire are the bodies, minds, and lives of women. A French woman is renamed in order to be buried beside her Algerian husband. Another loses her daughter to that continental divide. With the will to justly carry divergent loyalties, we discover the human heart to exist in all places, within, over, and beneath any geographic borders.

With renowned and unparalleled skill, Assia Djebar does more than bring to life the unspeakable realities of war and independence. In The Tongue’s Blood Does Not Run Dry she draws lines and paints color onto the human faces that speak directly to us with resonating intimacy.
