Hmida Ayachi is a well-established Algerian novelist and playright who writes in Arabic. One of his masterpieces "متاهات، ليل الفتنة" was translated into French by Lotfi Nia and published by Barzakh in October 2016.
I have not yet read him in Arabic but the translation was astounding. Translator Lotfi Nia has made me discover an author who will remain one of my favourite Algerian novelist.
