The Meursault investigation by Kamel Daoud( Book )

69 editions published between 2013 and 2018 in 15 languages and held by 1,917 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This response to Camus's The Stranger is at once a love story and a political manifesto about post-colonial Algeria, Islam, and the irrelevance of Arab lives. He was the brother of "the Arab" killed by the infamous Meursault, the antihero of Camus's classic novel. Seventy years after that event, Harun, who has lived since childhood in the shadow of his sibling's memory, refuses to let him remain anonymous: he gives his brother a story and a name--Musa--and describes the events that led to Musa's casual murder on a dazzlingly sunny beach. Harun is an old man tormented by frustration. In a bar in Oran, night after night, he ruminates on his solitude, on his anger with men desperate for a god, and on his disarray when faced with a country that has so disappointed him. A stranger among his own people, he wants to be granted, finally, the right to die. The Stranger is of course central to Daoud's novel, in which he both endorses and criticizes one of the most famous novels in the world. A worthy complement to its great predecessor, The Mersault Investigation is not only a profound meditation on Arab identity and the disastrous effects of colonialism in Algeria, but also a stunning work of literature in its own right, told in a unique and affecting voice."--
Zabor ou les psaumes : roman by Kamel Daoud( Book )

12 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in 3 languages and held by 262 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Orphaned of mother, sidelined by his father, he grew up in the company of books that offered him a new language. He has always been convinced of a gift: if he writes, he rejects death; that which he encloses in the sentences of his notebooks gains time of life. Like a Scheherazade rescuing his fellow men, he experiences the crazy power of the imaginary night after night. This evening, it is with his dying father that he is called by a half-brother honored ... Fable, parable, confession, Kamel Daoud's second novel pays tribute to the need for fiction and the insolent freedom of a chosen language. -- Summary by Babelio

Mes indépendances : chroniques 2010-2016 by Kamel Daoud( Book )

9 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in French and held by 65 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Journaliste depuis une vingtaine d'années, Kamel Daoud a tenu pendant quinze ans dans "Le Quotidien d'Oran" la chronique la plus lue d'Algérie, tout en collaborant à divers médias en ligne et en écrivant occasionnellement pour la presse étrangère. Concernant la période 2010-2016, il a ainsi signé près de deux mille textes - d'abord destinés au public algérien puis, sa notoriété grandissant, de plus en plus lus dans le monde entier -, dont cent quatre-vingt-deux ont été retenus pour ce recueil. Ce rythme effréné donne son souffle et esthétique à l'ensemble. Qu'il brocarde l'islam politique ou la déliquescence du régime algérien, qu'il embrasse l'espoir suscité par les révolutions arabes ou qu'il défende la cause des femmes, c'est d'une plume originale, imagée, percutante et engagée. Car Kamel Daoud a érigé la chronique en exercice de style, en art de tendre un miroir à ses contemporains tout en s'interrogeant jour après jour, avec ou malgré l'actualité, sur l'homme, les dieux et les libertés.

La préface du nègre : Le minotaure 504 : et autres nouvelles by Kamel Daoud( Book )

3 editions published in 2015 in French and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Un athlète algérien qui court le marathon des jo d'Athènes se sent investi des attentes de tout un peuple. Un chauffeur de taxi livre sa détestation d'Alger au long d'une logorrhée hallucinée. Un militaire expose à la Foire internationale un prototype d'avion qu'il a conçu seul ou presque, espérant susciter l'intérêt des habitants de la capitale. Un écrivain embauché pour faire le nègre se rebiffe et outrepasse son rôle. Un Arabe imaginaire s'identifie au sauvage, au nègre, à Vendredi, cherchant dans ces figures inventées par d'autres la place censée être la sienne. Toutes ces voix d'hommes perdus, dépossédés de leurs rêves, se confrontent à une même question : qu'est-ce qu'être algérien aujourd'hui ? Egarés dans le labyrinthe de leurs obsessions, entravés dans leurs tentatives de révolte, les personnages de ces nouvelles donnent à voir l'Algérie contemporaine dans sa violence refoulée et son absurdité

"This engaging collection of essays showcases the extraordinary passion, insight, and range of journalist and best-selling author of The Meursault Investigation, Kamel Daoud. He has been a journalist for more than twenty years, writing the most-read column in Algeria, in Le Quotidien d'Oran, while also collaborating on various online media and contributing to foreign publications such as the New York Times. During the 2010-2016 period, he put his name to almost two thousand texts--first intended for the Algerian public, then read more and more throughout the world as his reputation grew. Whether he is criticizing political Islam or the decline of the Algerian regime, embracing the hope kindled by Arab revolutions or defending women's rights, it is with an original voice, evocative, powerful, and engaged. Kamel Daoud has elevated the column to an exercise in style, an art of holding a mirror up to his contemporaries while constantly posing questions about the nature of man, religion, and liberty"--
