WHAT THE CRITICS HAVE SAID about Bleu sur Blanc:

Uprooted from Germany in the first half of the century, it is elsewhere, in North Africa, and in Tunisia more particularly, that this woman begins adult life - wife, mother, at age twenty-one. Everything sings: names, colors, forms, textures, voices, streets, souks, human beings. the sea and the desert, the relics of Antiquity... Sensual, present in memory, and discreet,they carry an emotional load which one guesses (but really only guesses) intense.

- Elisabeth Vonarburg, Le Lézard (January 2001)
