Sidi Bou Saïd, Tunisia, June 2015: facing the sea at night, in the aftermath of a friend’s death and of the terrorist massacre on the beach of Sousse, a woman attempts to take stock. In a heart-broken adieu that is also a love letter to her native country, the memory of her late father resurfaces and, with it, the story of Tunisia’s Jewish community. Shifting focus from Tunisia to Paris to a Flaubertian village in Normandy, Colette Fellous composes a mosaic of colourful portraits, giving voice to loved ones silenced in death and those often unheard in life. 

‘Colette Fellous’ beautiful book, humming and dancing with sensual intelligence, newly vivid in Sophie Lewis’s deft, delicate, agile version, takes change and translation as its very themes. It asks us to imagine leaving home, searching for a new home. That home may simply be language itself, a web of knot-ted meanings. However, if that web serves as a rope bridge slung between places and people, and the bridge is cut and falls, survival is put at stake. This Tilting World explores how, after such a rupture, one woman tries to re-compose the meanings of her life and thereby go on living.’– Michèle Roberts
