As a Frenchwoman born in 1936 Algeria, Alice Cherki was an 18-year-old medical school student in Algiers when the Algerian War (1954–62) broke out, and, unlike many of her French compatriots, she supported Algerian independence. This French book, half memoir, half diary, presents a valuable perspective into a little-known dimension of the conflict as a young, ambitious woman navigated the volatile political and relational territory the war created.
