Meet the author: Fatima Daas

Fatima Daas will be with us to discuss her book The Last One, which won her the prestigious Prix Les Inrockuptibles. Exploring themes of religious faith and sexuality, the French-Algerian author’s interrogation of identities is a gorgeous and galvanising read (The Guardian). Identifying as a Muslim, feminist, and gay writer, Fatima Daas is becoming the new voice of her generation.

About the author

Fatima Daas was born in 1995 and grew up in Clichy-sous-Bois, France, where her parents settled after arriving from Algeria. In high school, Daas participated in writing workshops led by Tanguy Viel. Influenced by Marguerite Duras and Virginie Despentes, she defines herself as an intersectional feminist. Her debut novel, The Last One, has sold more than thirty-five thousand copies in France and will be translated into ten languages.
