This short and blistering novel is richly poetic, its language overflowing with the despair and futility that only the injustice of history can bring.

This book is essential reading for anyone who is curious about how our current economy and society is structured — as well as how we got here. Like Foucault's best work, "Il faut s'adapter" is a remarkable map of our history as well as a guide for changing the present. A staggering achievement!

Zahia Rahmani’s novel is in constant conversation with the politics of translation—between dream and memory, between identity and self, across culture and language, it is concerned with bridging the gaps of interpretation, in filling the holes that are left behind, and in retrieving what (or who) gets lost.

Daas has described herself as an "intersectional feminist" and this book captures the term in all of its complexity. After all, being a gay French Muslim woman involves so many different overlapping perspectives that are so entirely at odds with the cis-white-secular/Catholic world of France that it is no wonder that Daas felt the need to write it all out.

In Nature Humaine, Joncour brings to life the transformations of the French countryside between these two decades through the story of a family of farmers--particularly that of Alexandre, the son who takes over the farm with mixed enthusiasm when his three sisters move to the city.
