"Nayla Zeitoun has just been told by her son that she has become a grandmother. In his excitement he lets out a small secret about the child, and she flies out of the house with a handful of salt to dispel the evil eye. Her daughters are astonished as she has never left the house before without a man of the family beside her. When Mr. Zeitoun hears that she has gone out, he is so angry that he repudiates her three times and so breaks the marriage. He regrets his action at once but according to Islamic law he can only remarry her if she marries and is divorced by someone else first. He persuades an unassuming neighbor to take her as his wife and then divorce her. He thinks he has taken care of things according to the laws of God and society, but events take an unexpected turn."--BOOK JACKET

"À la frontière du réel et de la fiction, Leyla Z. Mechentel nous fait suivre l{u2019}itinéraire de femmes algériennes entre leur pays d{u2019}origine et l{u2019}Europe {u2013} en particulier l{u2019}Italie et la France. Djida et Sassiya se rencontrent lors de leur première année d{u2019}université, à Alger. Malgré leurs divergences, l{u2019}une musulmane pratiquante jusqu{u2019}à la dévotion, l{u2019}autre marxiste et féministe, elles deviennent amies. Séparées momentanément {u2013} Djida suit son jeune mari en Italie, Sassiya reste à Alger {u2013}, elles se retrouvent à Paris, mais leur relation se détériore en même temps que s{u2019}inversent les rôles : la dévote se glisse dans la peau d{u2019}une Parisienne mondaine, la marxiste féministe se découvre une identité religieuse. L{u2019}une comme l{u2019}autre ont leurs raisons que l{u2019}auteure analyse avec justesse et subtilité. . Dans un style alerte et vif qui privilégie le dialogue, comme pour mieux faire entendre les voix de ses personnages, Leyla Z. Mechentel livre ici un récit moderne, traversé de tragédies mais aussi de moments de bonheur"--Page 4 of cover
