Summary "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"-- Provided by publisher.
