    review Ì PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook ´ Mathias Énard (Pdf/E–book) [Rue des voleurs] author Mathias Énard 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 Énard and therefore came to this novel without prior knowledge of his literary predilections For the most part he

Read Rue des voleurs

Rue des voleurs characters ☆ 104 Read Rue des voleurs E's place in Christophe Claro's bold pronouncement that Énard's earlier work is the novel of the decade if not of the centuryMathias Énard studied Persian and Arabic and spent long periods in the Middle East A professor of Arabic at the University 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 of important French authors including Marcel Proust Gustave Flaubert Jean Genet Guy de Maupassant and Maurice Blanchot among othe. Not my thing and I felt that all the because I was coming to this from the fascinating Compass and knew that Enard s other Englished novel is a five hundred page sentence All of that suggests a fascination with form and ideas This book is this book is Dickens written by a Frenchman The book gives us a perfectly linear narrative with a few vaguely connected events and much of it frankly is silly how much can you read about one man s ogling before you cease to care I can justify this in two ways First Enard was just trying something different but different for him happened to be a solid realistic novel If that s the case well I guess he pulled it off There s plenty of characters and melo dear god did we really need to throw cancer in with the terrorism drama here Second Enard is slyly mocking the self righteousness of many contemporary readers including myself who will be miffed by the idea that a Moroccan man might actually find the freedoms of Europe enticing And I was miffed and then convinced that I was being a dullard and that of course there are many many things about the west that are deeply desirable I m just not convinced that that main one is sexual promiscuity Alternatively I guess this is just straight nihilism Europe is morally decayed North Africa is morally decayed we re all morally decayed That seems about right

Rue des voleurs

Rue des voleurs characters ☆ 104 Read Rue des voleurs S from a boy into a man from a devout Muslim into a sinner take place against the backdrop of some of the most important events of the past few years the violence and exciting eruption of the Arab Spring and the devastating collapse of Europe's economyIf all that isn't enough Lakhdar reunites with a childhood friend one who is planning an assassination a murder Lakhdar opposesA finalist for the prestigious Prix Goncourt Street of Thieves solidifies Énard's place as one of France's most ambitious and keyed in novelists of this century This novel may even take Zon. Not as weird as I expected from the twisty angular cover design the structure is straightforwardly linear nor from the author s reputation preceding him for the sort of single sentence Zone but Street of Thieves was interesting in its own right as a story At first it seemed like it might be an explanatory socio political case study moulded into a novel much like Horses of God which similarly featured directionless young working class Moroccan guys seduced to varying degrees by well funded radical Islamic organisations Except this book also takes in dead end jobs illegal immigrant experiences the economic difficulties of Spain and the Occupy movement Though it was at least obvious from the start that by making the narrator Lakhdar essentially convincing nard avoided the massive flaw of Horses of God in which extremists ghosts suddenly acuired post mortem an understanding of their situations very similar to those of the liberal Western readers the book was written for This narrator s bildungsroman by contrast makes sense That s to say I find the narrator convincing for informed opinions you d be better reading posts by twentysomething guys from Arab backgrounds or at least their mates this novel like Horses is also written by an academic a couple of decades older than his main characters It was about a third of the way through that I really started to like Street of Thieves as a story as than an extended example from a textbook or long read news feature noting at the end Lakhdar is a composite of several interviewees although even before that wrenching descriptions of certain feelings and situations as well as plot points that felt fiction than fact occasionally made it clear it was at heart a novel Most of these descriptions are rather long and detailed but I thought nard especially vividly good on what it s like taking leave of someone you like but don t know well after a night out And something I m not sure I d really seen described before but which in my own way I ve got to know in recent years how comfortable and necessary it can be to knowingly hide one s head in the sand live with blinkers on and that there are some situations in which it may be the best way to feel a decent uality of life those weeks seem to me like a somber happiness the edge of a razor and you don t know whose throat it s going to cut just as the tightrope walker must defy the possibility of falling in order to concentrate on his footsteps he looks in front of him gently maneuvers the pole that saves him from the abyss advances towards the unknown I was walking without thinking about the fate that had pushed me towards Barcelona like an animal I could sense the storm to come around me inside me while at the same time putting it out of my mind so I d be able to cross the voidRecalling instances of the old colleague or acuaintance who returned from holiday in Turkey and complained about the sleazy waiters and other local men who tried to chat up her and her sister for some reason it was a popular destination for these women to go to with their sisters it was intriguing to hear the other side of the story about this type of young man who is routinely necessarily batted away Reading of course means not being put on the spot by such guys perhaps wanting simultaneously to understand and assert oneself whilst knowing that sounding sympathetic could easily give the wrong signal Here were Lakhdar and his mate wandering the streets of Tangier hoping to get the courage together to chat up European tourists near their own age as their compatriots were forbidden to them and yes unfortunately their attitudes aren t likely to get on the right side of most of the objects of their desire And he s one of those hapless men from thousands of miles away who send social media and dating messages so desperate and vague that our perspective is why do they even think this would work I looked at a few Internet sites sent some Facebook messages to girls I didn t know all French like throwing bottles into the sea I am a young Moroccan from Tangier I m looking for friendship to share my passion books So typical simply to mention nebulous books rather than to start a conversation about a specific one asking and stating some opinions which if one is lucky might at least provoke a reply in some idle moment of boredom I ll show you ladies how cultivated I am I thought hence the note about the books slightly exaggerated perhaps but sober and precise I should add that I chose girls who definitely were pretty but who wore glasses and who came from cities I knew nothing about but imagined were cold boring and thus propitious for reading It goes without saying that I never received a replyLakhdar actually has plenty of worth to say about books to the reader of Street of Thieves Novels about big readers can be a bit of a self referential yawnfest but this is a not yr usual selection of texts and b an autodidact with a tough life who sometimes is too overworked to read sometimes plain can t get books rather than the Brooklyn based hipster whose taste is already ultra familiar Tattered classic European noir and thrillers eg Manchette Izzo are Lakhdar s favourites among the small selection of affordable non Islamic books he can find in Morocco fans of those will find stuff of interest here there may also be hidden references to these novels I was oblivious to For those who know the Tangier expat literary tradition there may or may not also be a few easter eggs I ve read next to none of it And there is loads here about classical Arabic literature and poetry that will likely be fascinating to people trying to explore that During Lakhdar s travels to Tunisia and ultimately to Spain as an illegal immigrant his favourite touchstone is Ibn Battuta It was also revealing to hear him describe French and Spanish love poetry as dry showing that it goes both ways given that some Europeans find the translated Arabic euivalents too flowery and heavy Intriguing too to hear about linguistic nuances this when trying to communicate across a language barrier You try acting funny and charming in literary Arabic it s no piece of cake believe me people will always think you re about to announce another catastrophe in Palestine or comment on a verse of the Koran Lakhdar is one of those people who just can t help engaging in detail with material I could relate to the way that when employed for menial data entry work of historical records he started reading lots around the content subject in his spare time and that s the reflex that makes an autodidact in the first placeIt was still the sort of novel that makes you feel like you ve learned something and for some readers non fiction might be preferable but it was also a good story along the way with the moments of experiential insight that novels do well Interesting too to read this straight after Houellebec s Submission and see a philosophical journey in approximately the opposite direction And I suspect that those who know of the books that Lakhdar reads will get out of it again

Mathias Énard ´ 4 characters

Rue des voleurs characters ☆ 104 Read Rue des voleurs 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. It was impossible to guess if he had been hurt by my suspicions or if his own fate saddened him like an incurable diseaseThis is a necessary timely novel I admit to a hesitation a shame about confronting the world around me Much like my inability to pursue Derrida on Hospitality I needed to look away There s a part of me that I don t care admire at times uoting the poet Dylan I used to care but things have changedCreeping in to Enard s novel I was initially tempted to toss it aside as the narrative opens on almost Orientalist terms a Moroccan spends his time ogling Western girls and lusts after his cousin Was Portnoy s Complaint a racist tract The protagonist is soon kicked out of his house and returns from homeless to the folds of an Islamic Center This is distant time of the Arab Spring and despite his employer the protagonist simply wants drink beer and read hard boiled novels That isn t too much is it Matters both coalesce and drag in the heavy middle of the novel The satire is heady and piercing The unity of the Arab world existed only in EuropeThere is w wonderful scene towards the end where a group immigrants are watching Barcelona FC on tv in a pub and noting the proliferation of girls wearing the colors and drinking beer One of them muses that it is this element female beer drinking which makes Barca and Spain the kings of football If only such occurred across North Africa the balance of soccer supremacy might tilt One often needs to dream Highly Recommended
