For Malika Mokeddem, the sea is a fundamental element in her representation of the world. The Mediterranean Sea is indeed the border between her two fictional and autobiographical fields of action: Algeria and France. From this double culture, this double belonging and equally this double rending, Malika Mokeddem moulds the substance of a literary creation characterized by tension between the desert and the Mediterranean.These zones are simultaneously places and “no-places”; they are literary creations, projections of aspirations and of internal conflicts, allegories of battles won and victories over fear, taboos and the weights of convention.
