Product description


Magnificent... a captivating autobiographical novel ― Elle

A vital book for our times... Nina's story will touch any reader who has ever felt lost or out of place, or who has ever yearned to love and be loved ― European Literature Network

Haunting, spell-binding, luminous ― Lire

Intense, gorgeous, troubling, seductive - a novel that has to be surrendered to rather than read -- Sarah Waters, Booker-shortlisted author of Fingersmith, The Night Watch and The Little Stranger

A tour de force ― Le Figaro

An incandescent writer ― Les Echos

The brilliant thing about this book is that it makes reading autobiographies chic. Bouraoui's unflinching depiction of her life, told in a detached, measured tone, catches one unawares. Her descriptions, although witty, are also unmistakably sad. Her love for all that is womanhood is heart-warming. ― Irish Times

It's easy to see why this novel dominated the bestseller charts for so long in France ― Monocle

Blown away by the power and lyricism of All Men Want to Know. It's a resolutely queer novel of female sexual identity, of remembering and becoming, trauma, mothers and daughters, colonialism, and finding a way through. What a book. Read it. -- Niven Govinden, author of THIS BRUTAL HOUSE

A deeply personal exploration of cultural and personal identity, sexuality and belonging. Raw and sensual, readers will be enraptured by the narrator's intense evocations of guilt, desire and longing ― Scotsman

Intense yet gorgeous and deeply moving, All Men Want to Know is a defining portrait of womanhood that grips at the heart of the immigrant experience, about existing between two cultures yet belonging to neither ― Dazed

Book Description

A haunting, lyrical French bestseller set in Paris and Algiers about desire, shame and violence
