algérie: des artistes en quête

There is a problem in Algeria. A muslim cleric has uttered a fatwah because the writer Kamel Daoud has said and written things that according to the cleric show his apostasy. Algerians have asked the government to intervene

The Algerian government is not always on good speaking terms with writers, e.g. the books by Boualem Sansal are banned.

I enjoy reading about Africa. New books. Old books. By African writers. By non-African writers. Novel. History. Travel. Biographies. Autobiographies. Politics. Colonialism. Poetry.
