Eve out of Her Ruins – Ananda Devi
Two girls: Eve, whose body is her only weapon and source of power; Savita, Eve’s best friend and the only one who loves her selflessly, planning to leave, but not without Eve. Two boys: Saadiq, gifted would-be poet, deeply in love with Eve; Clelio, the neighbourhood tough, waiting without hope for his brother to send for him from France. All are desperate to escape the cycle of fear and violence in which they are trapped.
Winner of the Prix des cinq continents de la Francophonie 2006, shortlisted for the Best Translated Book Award 2017, the Albertine Prize 2018 and the inaugural First Translation Prize 2018, Eve out of Her Ruins was published in English for the first time in 2016.
