Jean-Marie Blas de Robles, philosopher, archaeologist, traveler, prolific author translated into many languages, history lover, giving life to the narration, the writing, the fiction. « In the depth of the Flesh is an ambitious, moving, admirable novel — that reveals a whole part of the history of Algeria. A story seen through the prism of a son's love for his father, » says his publisher, Éditions Zulma.«, Born in 1954 in Sidi-Bel-Abbes, in Algeria then French » presents Wikipedia in a column drawing his amazing career and his bibliography.
Excerpt: « The radio began to broadcast the adagio of the Concertante Symphony, and I met the eyes of my father, faded but brilliant, in love, just in harmony with things. We do not talk much, barely a dozen sentences during whole morning; nothing we could say would succeed to express the intense communion we are aware in these moments. Everything happens as if the beauty of the sea would only realise the scenery, each time differently, of our happiness to be together. »
