Harraga is set in Algiers, and tells the story of two strong but very different women living in a ferociously male-dominated world. One night, the reclusive Lamia hears a loud banging on her door. She opens it cautiously, trying not to think of who might be out there, to find Cherifa on her doorstep, all of five-foot nothing, seventeen, dressed like a disco queen, and five months' pregnant. Lamia thinks the father is her wayward younger brother Sofiane, from whom she hasn't heard in a long time. He has become a harraga - one of those, unable to make a living in Algeria, who seek economic asylum in Europe. Into Lamia's life bursts a whirlwind of a girl, who never stops talking, who is seemingly unafraid of anyone, least of all of Blue Beard, as Lamia calls him, the disapproving fundamentalist who lives across the street. How these two women of such diametrically opposed temperaments manage to become friends, and what happens to them, is told in Lamia's ironical, amusingly contemptuous and outraged voice. Harraga is a powerful, often funny and ultimately extremely moving novel.… (mer)

> HARRAGA, de Boualem Sansal. — En 1999, l’auteur algérien Boualem Sansal nous avait offert le magnifique et troublant Serment des barbares. Voilà qu'il récidive avec Harraga, quatrième roman publié chez Gallimard. Cette fois c’est dans la peau d'une femme, celle de Laima, que se glisse le narrateur. Une femme libre, pédiatre, célibataire vivant seule à Alger et qui a fait de sa solitude son rempart, sa meilleure amie, son antre de quiétude, où les rêves peuvent venir l’habiter. Une femme libre et seule de surcroît, quoi de pire dans ce monde machiste ou règne l'obscurantisme des intégristes religieux ?
Harraga est inspire d'une histoire vraie. Harraga signifie « brûleurs de routes » ou « clandestins ». C'est la route que prend Sofiane, le frère de Lamina, le seul membre de sa famille qui lui reste.
Boualem Sansal manie la langue magnifiquement bien, nous menant par des chemins de traverse là où ne savions pas pouvoir nous rendre. Éditions Gallimard, Pans, 2005, 274 pages. (F.-I. L) Le devoir, 28 sept. 2005 … ; (Source),

Sansal did an impressive thing in telling a story that talks about the experiences of migrants leaving Algeria, but also acknowledges what (and who) is left behind, and the consequences of losing large numbers of young people. It's made clear that this is a loss both as migrants who don't plan to return and those who can't because they don't survive trafficking.

It is scorching in critique of corruption throughout Algeria, from the police to the civil service, health professionals and even the head of state. It is also (bravely) unflinching in criticising Islamist (as opposed to Islamic) influenced politics. From Lamia's attempt to find out what has happened to her brother, Sofiane, who has left to try and make it to Europe:
Maybe I should have told her that the only way to truly extricate this country from hell itself would be to toss the government into the sea, and the wagging tail of the civil service in with it. Then young people wouldn't dream of taking to sea any more for fear of meeting them bobbing on the waves.
The attempts by men to limit women in the name of religion is mocked throughout. In places it reads like a polemic but given the author's agenda and bravery in stating his politics in the face of intimidation I'm not inclined to judge him for using his writing in this way.
For every single person on this planet, there is a book that speaks directly to them, that is a revelation, that tells them everything they need to know. To read that book - your book- without being forever changed is impossible.
I'll be looking out for his other books which have been translated into English. ( )

Harraga, published in French in 2006, explores Islamism and its treatment of women.

The novel is set in an Algiers in 2001, when Islamist patrols roamed the streets, sermonisers warned of the fate of apostates, and street stalls sold posters of Bin Laden alongside those of Madonna. The first-person narrator is a paediatrician called Lamia who lives alone. Her parents and older brother have died, and her younger brother Sofiane is among the harragas, or path-burners, who have fled the country in search of better prospects abroad. A garishly dressed pregnant teenager, Cherifa, appears at Lamia’s door, and Lamia develops maternal feelings for her. When she disappears, Lamia is determined to find her, knowing the risks faced by a stroppy girl wearing defiantly western clothes. The novel’s weakness is that almost everything is narrated via Lamia’s monologue, from her conversations with Cherifa, through the treatment of women in Islam and the previous occupants of her house, to the hazards of a harraga’s journey.

Au lecteur

Cette histoire serait des plus belles si elle était seulement le fruit de l'imagination. Elle aurait tout l'air d'emprunter à la merveilleuse allégorie du grain de blé mis en terre, elle dirait l'amour, la mort et la résurrection. Et puis, il y a des fantômes sympathiques à chaque page et des gens si colorés qu'on voudrait les porter sur sa tête.

Bonjour, Oiseau !

Alors que ma vie se vidait
Que le sable coulait entre mes doigts
[...]
Ma porte rend un bruit inquiétant. Elle ne fait pas toc toc mais bang bang. Elle est blindée, c'est une chose, mais quand même l'actualité fait penser à d'autres phénomènes. [...]
