Reviews

Fascinating: Adimi synthesizes the private minutiae of the great and sometimes forgotten publisher Edmond Charlot with the history of the times in a suprisingly light, almost breezy fashion, making this a fast, interesting, and engaging read.--Adam Hocker
A splendid declaration of the love of literature, the only link between epochs and beings.
A subject in gold: it was necessary to instill a rhythm, an experience, a tension, even to shake up the hourglass of time. Kaouther Adimi, born fifty years after the mythical bookshop, succeeds brilliantly at this triple jump.
Adimi's confident prose displays Ryad and Charlot's emotional depth while nimbly shuttling the reader through nearly a century of history. This is a moving tribute to the enduring power of literature.--Fiction Book Review: Our Riches
"An understated, lyrical story of reading and resistance over the tumultuous generations."--Our Riches by Kaouther Adimi (01/27/2020)
