Algeria

Books in this genre are set in or about Algeria.

Algeria is a North African country with a Mediterranean coastline and a Saharan desert interior. Many empires have left legacies here, such as the ancient Roman ruins in seaside Tipaza. In the capital, Algiers, Ottoman landmarks like circa-1612 Ketchaoua Mosque line the hillside Casbah quarter, with its narrow alleys and stairways. The city’s Neo-Byzantine basilica Notre Dame d’Afrique dates to French colonial rule.

Frantz Fanon
The people come to understand that wealth is not the fruit of labour but the result of organised, protected robbery. Rich people are no longer respectable people; they are nothing more than flesh eating animals, jackals and vultures which wallow in the people's blood.
Frantz Fanon, The Wretched of the Earth

Mouloud Benzadi
حبُّ الوطنِ شُعورٌ رَاسخٌ في النفسْ، لا يشوبُهُ عكرٌ أو دنسْ، هو شيئٌ من ذَاتي، وجزءٌ من حَياتي، وسيظلُّ حاضِرا في كتابَتي، في غُرْبتي، حتى مَمَاتي.
Mouloud Benzadi
