I’ll be highlighting some of my favourite books from the countries recently affected by terrorist violence. To start, a relatively recent novel that is quintessentially parisian. Her début novel, La Gourmandise, is also a great read.

“I have finally concluded, maybe that’s what life is about: there’s a lot of despair, but also the odd moment of beauty, where time is no longer the same. It’s as if those strains of music created a sort of interlude in time, something suspended, an elsewhere that had come to us, an always within never. Yes, that’s it, an always within never.”
