Into the Kingdom of Mount Lebanon
In our literature review, Clément Massé tells us about Hoda Barakat's new novel, "The Kingdom of the Earth". The Lebanese writer tells the life of a small Maronite community in Mount Lebanon at the beginning fo the 20th century until the 1975-1990 civil war. We also take a look at Abdellah Taïa's new novel "Unfaithful" (Infidèles), in which the author once again makes a brilliant attempt at challenging taboos in Moroccan society.
