The Tongue's Blood Does Not Run Dry by Assia Djebar
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Internationally acclaimed novelist, scholar, poet and filmmaker Assia Djebar presents a brutal yet delicate exposition of how wars are fought upon women's lives and bodies. A French woman is renamed in order to be buried beside her Algerian husband; another loses her daughter to that continental divide. Despite divergent loyalties, the human heart exists within, beneath and beyond geographical borders.

Author Biography

With her Berber and Muslim roots, her accomplishments as an Arab woman at the highest echelons of Western society in France and America, and her relentless output as a novelist and filmmaker, ASSIA DJEBAR speaks for the women, the poor, victims of both terrorism and the "War on Terror" that began in Algeria forty years before it arrived on US soil, and provides a much needed alternative voice to the litanies of the "experts." Djebar won the Neustadt Prize in 1996, Germany's Peace Prize in 2000, and in 2005 became the first Arab woman elected to the Acad mie Fran aise. She is Silver Professor of Francophone Literature and Civilization at NYU. Djebar lives in Paris and New York.
