  • Rencontre-débat avec Alice Kaplan


In the early 1990s, Emily left Minnesota to settle in Bordeaux. On the benches of the university, she meets Daniel Atlas, an Algerian Jew with whom she falls in love.
He is still only a young dandy when the civil war tears his country apart, forcing him to leave Emily and France. Back in El Biar, the neighborhood of his childhood, Daniel finds his parents isolated and threatened. This illustrious family of merchants, who knew Algeria colonized then independent, chose to stay on this land against all odds. Many years later, Becca, a young American, will also travel to Algiers to better understand their lineage. In a virtuoso composition, Alice Kaplan, writer and specialist in Albert Camus, demonstrates that a novel can be the most beautiful lesson in history.
