About this deal

The colonial power of France occupied Algeria for 132 years, and Algeria's fight for independence was woven into the story.

No obstante, la historia comienza con el fin de la librería, más tarde convertida en biblioteca cuando ya no vende ningún libro y es de alguna manera rescatada por los organismos públicos de Argel. I think I would have enjoyed it more if I had been aware from the start that it was based on a real person (should have read the cover more carefully!The author's love for the city of Algiers, with its beautiful Mediterranean location, is sensed throughout the story. g. the mention of Max-Pol Fouchet “no longer brooding over Simon Hié, who left him to marry Camus before cheating on him in turn. Seguro que muchos de nosotros hemos pensado más de una vez en dedicarnos al sector editorial o a los libros.

Kitabın en güzel yanı Kaouther Adimi’nin arşivleri, kitapları, söyleşileri tarayarak oluşturduğu Charlot’nun kurmaca günlüğü. Kaouther Adimi nunca pierde la perspectiva histórica del relato, sino que añade, junto a las de Ryad y Charlot, una tercera capa narrativa que actúa como voz en off y proporciona tridimensionalidad al contexto. A pesar de la falta de recursos, de los tiempos convulsos, y de los intereses en contra, Edmond Charlot siguió adelante con su pequeña librería y con su editorial, publicando los libros de muchos de los escritores franceses y argelinos del momento. Sono tre le storie che si intrecciano e ognuna dà modo di scoprire aspetti e lati diversi della città di Algeri.

I'm not quite sure what to make of it all -- it's certainly evocative up to a point, and perhaps even moving to some readers as a celebration of those seeking to make space for art and writng, but I'm not sure that it's likely to connect with non-French or Algerian readers. Da passiert allerhand Geschichte so nebenbei; der Zweite Weltkrieg, der Unabhängigkeitskamp Algeriens… Camus redigiert in der Buchhandlung seine Texte, auch Saint-Exupéry gehört zu den engen Freunden. This book might be small in size, just under 150 pages, but it is dense with captivating literally anecdotes related to both Algerian and French titans of literature as well as with many unique perspectives on the history and culture of Algeria throughout the 20th century.

El pueblo argelino, en masa, adquiere gracias a Adimi una representación necesaria, una plataforma donde escenificar la historia sangrienta de un país menospreciado por los franceses desde la violenta apropiación de sus tierras y que fue arrastrado interesadamente al conflicto bélico en nombre de una patria que después se desentendió. The backdrop to these literary endeavors is far from ideal, permanent money and paper shortages culminate in the company of the main character in 1948 for 22 million francs in the red, despite publishing famous authors.Arab and Berber boys, who were Muslim, had to attend Catholic mass and they could not speak their languages at school. Pequeñas riquezas es una librería que abre sus puertas a principios del siglo XX con mucha ilusión y con muchas ideas en mente por parte de nuestro personaje. Küçücük kitabevinin kapısından Albert Camus, Antoine de Saint-Exupery,Andre Gide gibi nice isimler girdi.

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. Our Riches" is a fictionalized biography of book publisher Edmond Charlot, a window into mid-Twentieth Century Algerian history, and an expression of love of the written word. During WWII he was also publishing for the Free French movement in contrary to the laws of Vichy France. Charlot was an advocate for Algerian independence and the story is peppered with historical incidents of violence and massacres during the war for independence.En ocasiones me quedo allí inmóvil tanto tiempo que el camarero del café de al lado se alarma y me pregunta si va todo bien. Incluso, con el paso del tiempo decide ser él el que publique algunas obras, algunas de ellas sabiendo que no serían vistas muy bien por la época y la sociedad y otras que serían de grandísimos autores como Albert Camus.
