About the Author: Edmonde Charles-Roux

November 1966, Edmonde Charles-Roux receives the Prix Goncourt for her novel « Oublier Palerme » - 1966 Grasset (« To Forget Palermo » – Delacourt Press, 1968). This prestigious prize brings to the limelight a writer who before had been relatively unknown. Daughter of a French Ambassador, she could have lived out her life as part of the upper-class bourgeoisie, but she chose to follow a far more perilous yet exalted path. During the war, she volunteered as a nurse on the front in 1940 and then joined the Resistance and participated in the liberation of France. After the war, she joined the staff at Elle Magazine as a journalist and later became the editor-in-chief of Vogue, democratizing fashion and promoting feminist causes. She is subsequently fired for daring to put a black model on the cover. Edmonde Charles-Roux was a crusader, in her literary works as well as in her personal life. She has fought for women’s rights and become involved in politics, through her photo stories of politicians, artists and people influencing culture, who owe much of their fame to her recognition of their talent.

{Un désir d'Orient}, premier volume de la biographie d'Isabelle Eberhardt, s'achevait à Marseille alors qu'elle s'apprêtait à partir pour l'Algérie. {Nomade, j'étais} couvre donc les années africaines d'Isabelle, jusqu'à sa mort, à vingt-sept ans. La voici confrontée à de multiples épreuves : la médiocrité du frère aimé Augustin ; son mariage avec Slimène Ehni, spahi algérien ; un procès ignoble qui l'expulse d'Algérie et la sépare de son mari. Mais elle revient vers la terre élue et, dès lors, entre en nomadisme comme on entre en religion". C'est à Aïn Sefra, où elle était en reportage, qu'elle trouva la mort un après-midi d'octobre 1904, engloutie dans les eaux d'un oued. C'est grâce au jeune lieutenant Paris, un des admirables personnages secondaires qui gravitent autour d'Isabelle et qui entreprendra de fouiller les décombres boueux, que ses manuscrits parviendront jusqu'à nous."
