About the Author: Nina Bouraoui

Nina Bouraoui (born on 31 July 1967) is a French writer born in Rennes, Ille-et-Vilaine, of an Algerian father and a French mother. She spent the first fourteen years of her life in Algiers, then Zürich and Abu Dhabi. She now lives in Paris.

Her novels are mostly written in the first person and, with the exception of Avant les hommes (Before the Men), have been said by the author to be works of "auto-fiction". This is even the case for Le Bal des Murènes (The ball of moray eels), which, like Avant les hommes, has a male narrator. Since writing her first novel in 1991, Bouraoui has affirmed the influence of Marguerite Duras in her work, although the life narratives and works many other artists are also to be found in her novels (and songs). This is particularly true of Mes Mauvaises Pensées (My Bad Thoughts) which bears the imprint of Hervé Guibert, Annie Ernaux, David Lynch, Eileen Gray, and Violette Leduc amongst others. Questions of identity, desire, memory, writing, childhood and celebrity culture are some of the major themes of her work.

Fin des années 1980. Le Katmandou, le Studio A, le Scorpion sont quelques-uns des hauts lieux de la vie nocturne et du "Milieu des Filles". C'est là qu'évolue nuit après nuit la narratrice de ce journal recomposé. Des regards. Des séductions fugaces. Julien, l'ami homosexuel, le complice. Le souvenir de Marion, son premier amour d'adolescente, que des liaisons éphémères ne parviennent pas à lui faire oublier... Un désir d'être qui ne pourra s'accomplir, elle le sait, que dans l'écriture et dans l'amour. Après Garçon manqué et La Vie heureuse, Nina Bouraoui poursuit ici une quête d'identité qui va bien au-delà d'une orientation sexuelle assumée. "Il n'y a pas de malheur homosexuel, dit-elle, il y a un malheur amoureux."
