When a novelist writes in the context of current events a reader can either judge his book by its verisimilitude to known events or judge the book as a work of literature that just happens to use current events as an imaginative springboard without trying to be faithful to history I have not previously read any work by Mathias nard and therefore came to this novel without prior knowledge of his literary predilections For the most part he has written a coherent and relatively successful novel but I don t know to what extent it mirrors the actual times and situations in which he locates the narrativeThe first person narrator Lakhdar begins his story in his native Morocco in Tangier He is in his late teens bored libidinous and at loose ends Rejected by his family when he is caught in bed with his cousin Meryem who later dies during a botched abortion he finds himself on the streets living a precarious existence His friend Bassam gets him a job selling books for a Muslim organization that Lakhdar suspects of supporting violent jihadism and Lakhdar eventually changes jobs and becomes a typist for a French publisher He also meets Judit a Spanish student from Barcelona when she is visiting Tangier Lakhdar immerses himself in literature often out of boredom and wanting to cross to Spain takes a job working on a ferry Ultimately he enters Spain illegally and has a series of adventures there He reestablishes contact with both Judit and Bassam neither relationship being uncomplicated and his situation ends badly or at least ambiguouslyLakhdar s aimlessness and angst are not simply personal but reflect the frustrations lack of opportunity impoverishment and impulsiveness of an entire society and generation and the upheavals of the Arab Spring and growing Islamic radicalism are never far from the narrative s surface nard writes generally well although it took me a while to get used to his run on sentences sentence fragments being linked by commas into long riffs that serve an unclear purpose The reader is also left wondering about background material that might have been useful such as about Lakhdar s family of origin and its influence on his psychological formation and about his interest in reading some of which seems unlikely given his economic and educational restrictions The novel s ending also seems a little odd almost as if the author either ran out of ideas and uickly grabbed at a few implausibilities in order simply to close the narrative or as if he did not adeuately prepare the reader to find the ending convincingI enjoyed the novel but not as much as I had hoped I cannot judge whether it accurately reflects attitudes and events among some young people in the region today but it might be considered at least one perspective As a work of literature independent of these issues it was not remarkable although it is not bad either The Last Vessel The Chronicles of Luna Moon #1 of the decade if not Bedded by the Warrior of the centuryMathias Énard studied Persian and Arabic and spent long periods in the Middle East A professor The House of Thunder of Arabic at the University Beautifully Masked The Beautifully Series #3 of Barcelona he received several awards for Zone also available from Open Letter including the Prix du Livre Inter and the Prix DécembreCharlotte Mandell has translated works from a number Murderous Schemes An Anthology of Classic Detective Stories of important French authors including Marcel Proust Gustave Flaubert Jean Genet Guy de Maupassant and Maurice Blanchot among The Images And Oracles of Austin Osman Spare othe.

review Rue des voleurs Rue des voleurs summary Ó 8 Recipient of three French literary awards Mathias Énard's follow up to the critically acclaimed Zone is a timely novel about a young Moroccan boy caught up in the turbulent events of the Middle East and a possible murderExiled from his family for religious transgressions related to his feelings for his cousin Lakhdar finds himself on the streets of Barcelona hiding from both the police and the Muslim Group for the Propagation of Koranic Thoughts a group he worked for in Tangiers not long after being thrown out on the streets by his fatherLakhdar's transformation. DISCLAIMER I am the publisher of the book and thus spent approximately two years reading and editing and working on it So take my review with a grain of salt or the understanding that I am deeply invested in this text and know it uite well Also I would really appreciate it if you would purchase this book since it would benefit Open Letter directlyThis isn t Zone 20 It s a much different book linear and with infinity percent periods But it s still incredibly amazing captivating from the first chapter to the logical disturbing end I think this is going to take off when it comes out this fall since it offers such interesting insights into the Arab Spring and growing up in today s tumultuous climate This is a great book club book as well with all the uestions it raises and is incredibly well written and translated
