BEGAG, AZOUZ; HARGREAVES, ALEC (EDITOR & INTRODUCTION):
Shantytown Kid - Livres de poche

2007, ISBN: 9780803262584

ID: 196038815

University of Nebraska Press, Lincoln and London: 2007. Softcover. Brand new book. One day an illiterate Algerian immigrant in Lyon gave his son, Azouz Begag, a book, saying, "This book is a bird." How Begag took flight on the wings of learning is one of the stories that unfolds in this captivating autobiographical novel of growing up amid the multicultural complexities of contemporary France. Determined to leave behind the poverty of his shantytown life, Begag works to become a star pupil at the local primary schoolÑearning the jealousy and rejection of his Arab playmates even as he contends with the anti-Arab racism of his French peers. Begag's moving and often comical account of negotiating a path between the competing cultural spaces encountered during his childhood is a compelling tale of coming of age in a world of ethnic and racial tensions. A story for all ages, it is also very much of the moment, offering unique insights into the reweaving of the social fabric of France in response to growing ethnic diversity. Azouz Begag, widely acclaimed as both a novelist and a researcher at the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS), was appointed France's first minister for equal opportunities and was the nation's first cabinet minister of North African immigrant origin in 2005. He is the author of more than twenty books, including the sociopolitical essay Ethnicity and Equality: France in the Balance, available in a Bison Books edition. "What a delightful little book this is. . . . [Shantytown Kid] is a comic, heartwarming, coming-of-age story. . . . [It is] light, witty, and full of amusing twists. . . . Until the last page, the story keeps the reader totally engaged, and most of the time, smiling. Thank you, translators."ÑHistorical Novels Review "[T]his autobiographic novel both charms and informs. . . . Strongly recommended." Ñ KLIATT "Begag breaks into the French language and Republic with subversive humor and style, forcefully rendered in the first English-language translation of a personal trajectory intimately intertwined with the evolution of French society since the 1960s."ÑDanielle Marx-Scouras, author of La France de Zebda 1981-2004 "This beautifully translated and brilliantly introduced novel will hereafter serve as the essential starting point for an English-reading public desiring to make sense out of the urgent immigration and housing debates in contemporary France."ÑJames D. Le Sueur, author of Uncivil War: Intellectuals and Identity Politics during the Decolonization of Algeria Translated into English from the French by Naima Wolf and Alec C. Hargreaves.
