Nos richesses : roman by Kaouther Adimi( Book )

In 1935, Edmond Charlot was twenty years old and he returned to Algiers with a single idea in mind, to take example on Adrienne Monnier and his Parisian bookstore. As Charlot knows, his vocation is to give birth, to choose young writers from the Mediterranean, without distinction of language or religion. Placed under the aegis of Giono, its tiny bookstore is named Les Vraies Richesses. And to inaugurate his catalog, it publishes the first text of an unknown: Albert Camus. Charlot exults, ignoring that to devote his life to books is also to sacrifice it to the vagaries of misfortune. And to those of History. For revolt is rumbling in Algeria on the eve of World War II. In 2017, Ryad is the same age as Charlot in his early days. But he only feels indifference to literature. Studying in Paris, he is visiting Algiers with the task of repainting a dusty bookstore, where books soon give way to donuts. However, emptying these places is strangely complicated by the surveillance of the old Abdallah, the guardian of the temple.--Translation of page 4 of cover by Éditions du Seuil

L'envers des autres roman by Kaouther Adimi( Book )

7 editions published between 2011 and 2015 in French and Spanish and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Alger, centre-ville, début du XXIe siècle. Adel et Yasmine, frère et soeur, étaient proches, enfants. Ils ont grandi, changé, ils n’arrivent plus à se parler. Ils s’aiment en silence, entre une mère acrimonieuse et une aînée échouée là avec sa famille, qui peint à longueur de journée comme on s’invente un ailleurs. Au pied de l’immeuble, du haut des balcons et jusque chez eux, on les observe, on commente : ils sont différents, trop beaux et peut-être un peu trop libres, c’est insupportable. Dans une société étriquée par les convenances, dans un pays qu’on quitte plus facilement qu’on ne l’aime, être simplement soi-même est un luxe auquel la jeunesse n’a pas droit… Porté par une construction polyphonique croisant des voix qui ne se rencontrent jamais, L’envers des autres est un roman sensible, violent et lucide, dont la noirceur n’est adoucie que par les naïves rêveries d’une fillette en ballerines de toile." -- Quatrième de couverture
