  • Malika Mokeddem

    A descendent of Saharan nomads, Malika Mokeddem left Algeria in the 1970s to follow her medical studies in Montpellier, in France. Upon completing her specialisation, she became a doctor in the South of France and began writing an autobiographic novel "in betwen patients". The success of this and subsequent novels led her to scale down her medical activities and to become a fulltime writer. The assassination of scores of intellectuals in Algeria, including many of her friends as well as threats against her own life, influenced her writing in the 1990s. It is only towards the end of the decade that she moved away from the horror of war toward some kind of reconciliation with life.
