Shaykh Abdelmajid Boularwah embarks upon a journey from Algiers to Constantine in search of lost relatives who might help him defraud the new socialist government in its attempt to implement land reform. Written in the early 1970s, Wattar's "Earthquake" is an ominous message against the evils of intolerance, ignorance, and extremism, told in a language that resonates loudly, presciently foretelling the dreadful events which would later besiege Algeria.
