Wasini Araj
Waciny Laredj (Arabic: واسيني الأعرج, pronounced Wasini al-A'raj) (born 8 August 1954) is an Algerian novelist, short story writer and academic. He was born in Sidi Bou Jnan in Tlemcen province. He obtained a BA in Arabic literature from the University of Algiers and then went off to Syria to pursue postgraduate studies, aided by a government scholarship. He obtained an MA and a PhD from the University of Damascus.
Having finished his studies, he returned to Algeria and took up an academic position at his alma mater, the University of Algiers. He continued to teach there till 1994. The outbreak of civil war in Algeria in the 1990s forced Laredj to leave the country. After a short time in Tunisia, he moved to France and joined the faculty of the Université Paris III-New Sorbonne, where he taught Arabic literature.
As a writer, Laredj is well known throughout the Arabic- and French-speaking countries, although less so in the Anglophone world. Beginning in the early 1980s, he has published more than a dozen books. His novels often deal with the troubled history of his native Algeria. Several of his works have been translated into French. At least two of his books were available in French before they were available in Arabic.
Laredj and his wife Zineb Laouedj, have collaborated on an anthology on African literature in French, titled Anthologie de la nouvelle narration africaine. In the past, Laredj has produced literary programmes for Algerian television. He has also contributed a regular column to the Algerian newspaper El Watan.

Prof. Wasini al-araj: La littérature algérienne contemporaine
Il a suffi de quelques incultes, de quelques fous de Dieu et de quelques opportunistes pour que l’Histoire de l’Algérie sorte de l’Histoire. Ils ont estimé que la vie humaine valait moins que leurs intérêts personnels, matériels ; intérêts défendus sous le couvert de la foi.
