Nabile Farès, ethnologist, philosopher, dramaturge, poet, novelist and psychoanalyst was born in Collo (Kabylia peninsula, Algeria) in 1940. Thus he was a teenager at the time of the student demonstrations and the reciprocal massacres (French forces and settlers versus the Algerians) which began the Algerian War (the war of independence, 1954-62). Farès's father sent him to France to study—and to be safe. Nabile was one of the few Algerian students in Paris to choose to return to the struggle. He was on the east side of the Tunisian border—where FLN (National Liberation Front and their army) camps operated—when the war ended. Many Algerian writers saw the next years—eventually spanning decades—as a disappointment, and then a betrayal. It is this betrayal that haunts the trilogy of novels that form the core of Farès' work, DISCOVERY OF THE NEW WORLD (Dialogos, 2021). He is also the author of A PASSENGER FROM THE WEST (Dialogos / Lavender Ink, 2018) and EXILE: WOMEN'S TURN (Dialogos / Lavender Ink, 2017). He died in Paris in 2016.
