SUMMARY

"This biography of Jacques Derrida (1930-2004) tells the story of a Jewish boy from Algiers, excluded from school at the age of twelve, who went on to become the most widely translated French philsopher in the world - a vulnerable, tormented man who, throughout his life, continued to see himself as unwelcome in the French university system."--Back cover
