Sidi Bou Saïd, Tunisia: looking out over the Mediterranean the night after a terrorist attack on the nearby beach of Sousse, a woman attempts to take stock. Another recent tragedy resurfaces and, along with it, the memory of her late father, who emigrated to France in his later years. Through childhood memories and the prism of modern French classics, the story of Tunisia’s Jewish community is pieced together. Shifting from Tunisia to Paris to a Flaubertian village in Normandy, Colette Fellous embarks on a Proustian lyrical journey, in which she gives voice to loved ones silenced by death and to those often unheard in life. Her love letter and adieu to her native country becomes an archive – or refuge – for stories of human resilience.
