abstract
This book analyses representations of the Algerian War of Independence (1954-62) in the literary output of French authors of Algerian origin, problematizing the extent to which these literary 'sites of memory' provide appropriate spaces of consensus for hitherto competing memories of the war. The Algerian War in French/Algerian Writing provides a comprehensive understanding of the development of writing by French authors of Algerian origin, from its emergence in the 1980s to the present day.--Google Books.
