When he was eleven, his family was expelled from Egypt on the grounds that they had a French passport and given seven days to leave the country. They arrived in France on December 25, 1956 and from January 1957 to May 1957 lived, under the auspices of the French government, at the convent of Notre-Dame-de-l\u2019Osier in the Is\u00E8re with a hundred other expelled Egyptian Jewish families. \u00A0In July 1963, the Tebouls emigrated to Canada, where in due course Victor earned a B.A. degree at Concordia University, a master\u2019s degree at McGill University, and a doctorate at the Universit\u00E9 de Montr\u00E9al. Teboul, who writes in French, is a novelist, essayist, professor, and the founder and director, since 2002, of the online magazine Tolerance . His essay \u201C Mythe et images du Juif au Qu\u00E9bec\u201D (1977) provoked heated public debate about the role of the Jew in Canadian life and literature. In contrast to other writers, Teboul sees \u00A0exile less as a state of suffering than as a chance to strengthen Jewish identity.\u00A0 He is the author of two novels, Que Dieu vous garde de l\u2019homme silencieux quand il se met soudain \u00E0 parler (1999; May God Help You When the Silent Man Begins to Speak) and La lente d\u00E9couverte de l\u2019\u00E9tranget\u00E9 (2002; The Slow Unrelenting Discovery of Strangeness).\u00A0 His novels are fiction, but they borrow freely from his own life, expanding on his experiences to the point where, as he states, they reflect lives not his own and histories he could not have known first-hand.\u00A0 For Teboul, writing is an opportunity to create a place of one\u2019s own for Jews within a larger context, whether political, cultural, literary, or institutional. There is no question of erasing the distinctions between the Jew and others. Rather, his novelistic ambition is to insert the Jew, and particularly the Sephardic Jew and experience, into the literature of French Canada. Teboul\u2019s main character and alter-ego, Maurice Ben Ha\u00EFm, is conceived as a figure typifying the Qu\u00E9becois Jew. Maurice has a place in the ongoing history of the Jews of Quebec that began long before he arrived, for he works and interacts, as he must, with the history that preceded him. Similarly, when a Jew goes to France,\u00A0say, on arriving there he identifies immediately with the history of the Jews in France even though, as an individual coming from someplace else, he has only just arrived.\u00A0And thus, Teboul contends, Jews are never strangers in a strange land, because wherever they may be, \u00A0some of their own were there before and prepared the ground for them. Teboul\u2019s work takes a positive view of exile and expounds a nuanced understanding of the modern Jew living, as so often, outside his motherland and speaking in languages other than his mother tongue.
