His first novel to appear in English (The German Mujahid, Europa 2009) was the first work of fiction by an Arab writer to acknowledge the Holocaust in print. He started writing novels at the age of fifty, shortly after retiring as a high-ranking official in the Algerian government. He was awarded the prestigious Prix du Roman Arabe in 2012, and the German Peace Prize in 2011.

Praise for 2084: The End of the World

"2084 is a powerful novel that celebrates resistance."
--The Guardian

""A powerful satire on an Islamist dictatorship."
--The Spectator

"Sharply satiric...it's worthwhile watching Sansal dig fiercely into the essence of the all-controlling religious belief he roundly condemns."
--Library Journal

"Alison Anderson's deft and intelligent translation of 2084 helps to overcome such binary thinking by conveying Sansal's abhorrence of a system that controls people's minds, while explaining that the religion was not originially evil but has been corrupted. A moving and cautionary story."
--Kate Webb, The Times Literary Supplement

"2084 is a rare, powerful book, at the intersection of fable and lampoon,
of satire and science fiction."
--Lire

"The story is powerful, the humor, devastating . . . 2084 is an exceptional book."
--Télérama

"Boualem Sansal is of the great voices of North Africa."
--Le Monde Cultures et Idées

"2084 is noir fiction à la Orwell."
--Le Monde

"Sansal is our guide into absurdity and out of it, the perfect guide through the fear and laughter we expend reading 2084."
--The Rain Taxi Review
