Isabelle Eberhardt and North Africa: a Carnivalesque Mirage was published in November 2014 by Lexington Books (an imprint of Rowman & Littlefield). The book discusses Eberhardt's evolution in the Maghreb, with a focus on on her positioning in the French/Algerian conflict and her vision of gender identity. It departs from the existing literature on Eberhardt first in that it is the first full-length book to analyze her writings (that is, which is not simply a biography) and, second, because it departs from the myth of Eberhardt as anti-colonial and iconoclast figure.
