Un Oeil Qui Jamais Ne Se Ferme




'The desert lover becomes the captive of freedom' (Ibrahim al-Koni)

Ibrahim al-Koni is widely celebrated as one of the greatest Arabic-speaking writers of our times. Through these aphorisms and bons-mots, he conveys to the reader a unique insight into the universes which have inspired his work over the years: not only the Sahara desert, but also the relationship that human beings develop with the world. Selected by Hartmut Fôahndrich and translated into French by Yves Gonwzalez-Quijano, these aphorisms explore different topics: nature, the desert, the sea, seasons, the wind; the power of the fire, trees and flowers and rocks.

  Available in French (Alain Sèbe Images, Vidauban) and in German under the title 'Schafloses Auge' (Lenos verlag, Basel).
144 pp., 12 x 19 cm (4.7 x 7.5 in.), 500 aphorisms by Ibrahim al-Koni, 32 colour photographs, hardback, jacket. € 19.00
