Naima has had little interest in her Algerian origins - until now. Living in France, a country struggling with social unrest and political instability, the issue suddenly rears its head. How much of her family history does she really know? Her grandfather Ali, a Kabyle mountaineer, died before she could ask him why history had made him a "harki". Yema, her grandmother, could perhaps answer, but not in a language that Naima understands. Hamid, her father, who arrived in France in the summer of 1962 and lived in transit camps, no longer talks about the Algeria from his childhood. How can she reconnect with the past and understand her cultural legacy? A prize-winning novel about freedom, loss and the burden of inheritance.
