Anmeldelser

«With its panoramic vision and generous spirit, The Art of Losing finds shoots of hope amid the stony landscapes of the past.»

Spectator

«Remarkable . . . Because it deals with immigration, nationalism and Islam, it speaks urgently to our time . . . a novel about people that never loses its sense of humanity.»

Sunday Times, 'Translated Book of the Month'

«This pacy, complex piece of historical fiction (which was nominated for France’s most prestigious literary award, the Prix Goncourt) explores the tangled reality of identity

New Statesman

«Ms. Zeniter’s extraordinary achievement is to transform a complicated conflict into a compelling family chronicle, rich in visual detail and lustrous in language.»

Wall Street Journal

«An exceptional novel, a masterful meditation on the negative space of history. With surgical control and deep emotional precision, Alice Zeniter tells the story of a family at once severed from and forever tethered to its past.»

Omar El Akkad, author of <i>American War</i>

«A deeply human text about the ghosts of identity and decolonization.»

Vanity Fair

«A captivating exploration of the unspoken stories of the Algerian war.»

Le Monde

«A powerful family saga . . . [Zeniter] shows how history is passed down from generation to generation, in stories pockmarked by what’s left unsaid.»
