Sherazade is seventeen, Algerian, and a Asrunaway in Paris. This novel exposes with honesty and lyricism the various issues that affect a young woman living in a city which is both sophisticated and provincial, liberal and conservative, tolerant and prejudiced. In Paris, Sherazade is pursued by Julian, the son of French-Algerians who is an ardent Arabist. Pigeon-holed by Julian into the Astraditional exotic mold, Sherazade endeavors to create her own definition of Algerian Asfemininity and in doing so breaks down conventions and stereotypes. It is Julian's obsession with her that spurs her on to self-discovery and to make decisions about her future. Sherazade is about a young woman haunted by her Algerian past. It is a powerful account of a person who searches for her true identity but is caught between worldsa€”Africa and Europe, her parents' and her own, colony and capital. Ultimately it is an Asaccount of possession, identity and the realities of urban life in the late twentieth century.This novel exposes with honesty and lyricism the various issues that affect a young woman living in a city which is both sophisticated and provincial, liberal and conservative, tolerant and prejudiced.
