For Bachi is an Algerian writing in French, and while they may have voted to ban the burqa across the Channel, they also have the good sense to see The Silence of Mohammed for what it is, a work of literary fiction. Indeed, it was shortlisted for one of France's highest honours, the Prix Goncourt. We’ll tell you what’s true.

The Silence of Mohammed book. My conclusion is that Bachi wanted to toe the line between a retelling, somewhat of an educative fiction novel, and the somewhat whimsical, ancient storytelling feeling that religious/folk stories can conjure.

Salim Bachi’s novel The Silence of Mohammed (in general, beautifully translated by Sue Rose from Bachi’s French) is, in every sense, a very careful work of art. Its gravity, highmindedness and austere elegance are reminiscent of a black-and-white film that has been planned from the outset as a major statement on major matters; something like Carl Dreyer’s Passion of St Joan, say, or Ingmar Bergman’s Seventh Seal.
