Leila Sebbar

In Paris, in 1986, I discovered the term "beur" – the second generation of North African immigrants: young people who, despite being born and raised in France are not accepted as "French." I devoured numerous novels focused on beur by Algerian-born Francophone Leila Sebbar and published an article about her work in World Literature Today.
