Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0872862887, Paperback)As usual, Isabelle Eberhardt's stormy love affair with the Algerian desert sets the physical and emotional scene in this collection of short stories. Written in French in the late 1800s and translated by Karim Hamdy and Laura Rice, her characters live, love, work, and die with passions as fierce and brutal as the midday sun, reflections as gentle as the evening breeze, and happiness as beautiful and fleeting as the spring desert in bloom. As in "The Oblivion Seekers," Eberhardt's descriptions and voices are as lyrical, harsh, and ultimately captivating as the North African land and people she knew.
