About this deal

I loved the way the three plots were interlaced, and the fascinating way that the French and Algerian literary giants were woven into the story. He also defended the idea of "Mediterranean civilisation" as a force for peace and artistic excellence in a world rent asunder by politics and war. Sonra kitabevine ek olarak beğendiği genç yazarların tanınmasını da sağlayacak bir yayınevi kuruyor. It served as a painting and sculpture gallery and he hosted events featuring local and visiting speakers. A beautiful little novel about books, history, ambition and the importance of literature to everyone, especially people who are trying to find a voice.

The story involving Ryad showcased the passage of time and the lack of appreciation for history and the past by the younger generation. Thanks to this contest, she was invited to Muret then Toulouse and finally Paris, where she met with les éditions Barzakh.de todo ello da cuenta el apasionante diario de Charlot, al que ni los problemas para hacer frente a los pagos, ni la censura, ni el estallido de la Segunda Guerra Mundial, ni el hecho de estar robando cada vez más tiempo a su familia consiguieron arrebatarle la ilusión por estar al frente de Las Verdaderas Riquezas. Also, I hope that these little vignettes from the world I inhabit will bring you some feelings of peace and comfort as well as they will have a calming effect on you by cultivating a loving and gentle space for all readers. Charlot is portrayed as an idealist, humanist, dreamer, and bibliophile who strongly believed in the power of storytelling as a path to peace and unity. A book spanning the history of late colonial and early post independence Algeria, through a bookseller.

Pues claro que va todo bien: los libros están colocados por orden alfabético, las obras de arte colgadas justo encima, y aquí solo tienen derecho de ciudadanía la literatura, el arte y la amistad. Mixing past and present, reality and invention, history and intimate everyday life, Kaouther Adimi leads us with finesse and simplicity through the alleys of an imaginative city and gives life to the novel of a ferryman of books and ideas who was, perhaps without knowing it, the secret creator of much of the best literature of the twentieth century. It`s a beautifully constructed book, easy to read but with plenty of echoes which resound after you`ve put the book down.

The contemporary storyline is rather redundant compared to the interesting tale of Edmund (albeit he annoyed me a bit at times in the sense that he doesn't request help or tries to overcome his own lack of business sense). Son iki karakter Cezayir’in yıllar içindeki dönüşümünü göstermek ve biraz da çatışma yaratmak için konulmuş.

Seguro que muchos de nosotros hemos pensado más de una vez en dedicarnos al sector editorial o a los libros. I am pretty much a pre-sold believer in any books about books, libraries and publishing and I was completely captivated by Adimi's world building here of Charlot's life and of present day Algiers. Pero, incluso convertida en biblioteca, el establecimiento no resulta fácil de mantener y al final, termina siendo vendido para convertirse en pastelería, muy a pesar del bibliotecario de ese momento, a quien le duele que la gente parezca haber dejado de interesarse por la literatura.

Gracias a mi queridísima Lydia, que me lo recomendó y prestó hace algunas semanas, creo que en diciembre de 2022). Ese punto de encuentro nos dará a conocer también la historia de Argel, los años de ocupación francesa y su posterior lucha por la independencia; en pocas páginas la autora consigue un retrato político y social que no nos resulta desconocido.
