La Grande Maison by Mohammed Dib (4 star ratings)

In he moved to France, where he has continued to reside, although he returns regularly to Algeria. With the death of Kateb Yacine inDib became the undisputed doyen of Algerian literature. He was not only on Mohxmmed poet and novelist.

He was not only one of the first Maghrebian francophone authors of the post-World War II renaissance, publishing poems as early asbut also continued to be both prolific and innovative. Unlike some of his contemporaries, Dib has constantly sought to renew and revitalize his writing. Besides being Algeria’s foremost living novelist, he is a major poet.

His early novels have been widely read in Algeria and have been introduced into the school and university curricula. His best known novel, Qui se souvient de la merostensibly gramde with the Algerian War, but is particularly remarkable for its many-layered, surreal, and futuristic imagery.
