Description

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. The young man is literally told to trash the books and he struggles to figure out what he actually should do with them. 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 crecimiento lento pero constante, la inevitable llegada de los premios y posterior reconocimiento. 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.

From that passionate little room, entitled to the "true riches" of life, the first editions of memorable texts come out, including the debut of young genius Camus. Bu günlük aracılığıyla 1930’dan 1961’e kadar hem Cezayir’in kültürel ortamı hem yayıncılık dünyasında yaşanan sıkıntılar hem de Cezayir’in bağımsızlaşma sürecinde yaşananlar hakkında bilgi sahibi oluyoruz. Al menos a mí me ha hecho reflexionar sobre las pequeñas librerías, la poca importancia que le damos muchas veces, al menos parte de la población, a los libros y sobre todo a los sueños y miedos internos. 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.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. 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). 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. The colonial power of France occupied Algeria for 132 years, and Algeria's fight for independence was woven into the story.

Nuestro librero trata a toda costa de salvar su pequeño negocio y para cuando decide jubilarse la librería todavía sigue abierta. Highly recommended to literature connoisseurs and those who enjoy basking in the light of other cultures. I really enjoyed the way this book went between these two timelines, whilst also inserting cultural and political turmoil into the shaping of the plot. It`s a beautifully constructed book, easy to read but with plenty of echoes which resound after you`ve put the book down.In this experience, Ryad is accompanied by old Abdallah, the last bookseller of The True Wealth, a kind of spiritual guide who refuses to leave the place. 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. No me gusta tener programadas mis lecturas ya que siempre acabo leyendo lo que me apetece en cada momento.
