Kadour Naïmi came from Algeria to study in France in 1966, four years after his country’s liberation from colonial rule and two years before a different liberation movement exploded in France. Capturing the youthful enthusiasm and revolutionary earnestness of the young rebels he joined, Naïmi's account of May ’68 is a memoir like no other. Spirited and inspiring, it manages to transmit important historical lessons amid stories of sex, student life, and street-fighting. 

Kadour Naïmi has worked in various countries as a playwright, stage director, screenwriter, filmmaker, author, and journalist. He lives in Italy.

David Porter is professor emeritus at SUNY/Empire State College.
