Recommended to Sophie by: The Nobel Prize !
Read in November, 2008, read count: 1

I learned about the desert and North African culture. Then Le Clézio go deeply in the poverty, in the every day life of poor people living without happiness.
Lalla, the main character, discover the fear.

Ruth Mcdermott Hi there

I see you have reviewed Desert, which makes you an ideal person for me to ask if you would you like to put a question to JMG Le Clézio himself about his book? BBC World Book Club is interviewing him on 11th March and would love to hear from you. If you could email me at as soon as you can with your question about the book (anything - doesn't have to be particularly clever!), we can either arrange for you to talk to the man himself, or have our presenter put your question to Jean-Marie for you. Then you get to hear your question on World Service Radio! Please get in touch soonest, including where you are in the world and contact details.

Thanks, and all the best.

Ruth McDermott, BBC World Book Club
