New Humanity Movement


In the guts of the city, there are deep wounds, and tears that force us to be like stones. However there is also hope, that helps us to live, and, above all, there is love”. This is how Rachid Djaïdani, a young writer of African origins, speaks about his last novel, recently published in Italy by Perrone Publishing House, with the title “Deep-seated, a cry from the banlieu” .
Little Lies's story is made up of discriminations, hard life in the Parisian banlieu, where the rough-edged and bitter reality of loneliness runs the risk of nullifying the most normal dreams of every human being. Then something happens, that heralds the true opportunity of a life.
The novel is the exciting common thread of a search for truth and beauty, of a redemption for oneself and for the others; this makes the reader be part of a complex reality, shared by many suburbs of our cities, but the same reader does not remain with a sour taste in her mouth. This is because “in the banlieu-jungle even flowers grow”.
In the attachments you can find the interview to Djaïdani, published in the Italian newspaper “Avvenire” on December 9th 2009.
