Yasmina Khadra

The Noir Novel in a State of War

Yasmina Khadra situates his "Algiers Trilogy" (Morituri, Double Blank and Autumn of the Chimeras) within the context of the reactionary tragedy Algeria is living through; the author explains how he has managed to keep his mind alert and to acquire the freedom needed to express himself through the noir genre. A genre which, Khadra says, enables him to reach his readers and to move them, to stir their conscience and to offer them hope.
