About the Author

Kateb Yacine (1929-89) recieved many literary distinctions including the Prix Jean Amrouche. The 1986 award of the French Grand Prix National des Lettres belatedly recognized him as the most influential author of the first group of Islamic Arab writiers who contributed substantially to literatures in French.

Richard Howard, himself a poet, is one of the foremost American translators of French literature. Bernard Aresu, author of the introduction, is Professor of French and Italian at Rice University.
