    PDF/EPUB Abdellah Taïa Ô L'Armée du Salut PDF Ë L'Armée du PDF \ Ô l'armée kindle, salut kindle, L'Armée du ebok, L'Armée du Salut PDF/EPUBSalvation Army is autobiographical to an extent it’s based on Taïa’s own experiences growing up in an arab household with parents who fought and loved an older brother he and the whole family adored multiple sisters and being a young gay boy And it’s the story of a young arab man entering academia learning French coming to Geneva; a meeting with the Western world that from afar could seem to offer salvation but up close is so many other things It’s at first the young boy surrounded by family and then as Taïa himself described it when he visited my university the ‘hero’ alone in Geneva It’s a mirror the two parts reflecting each other Everything that we experience in the second half when Taïa is older is present in the first half in his childhood It’s a moment from childhood and a moment from ad

    PDF/EPUB Abdellah Taïa Ô L'Armée du Salut PDF Ë L'Armée du PDF \ Ô l'armée kindle, salut kindle, L'Armée du ebok, L'Armée du Salut PDF/EPUBThree simple yet haunting intertwining tales of a boy turned young man who is an outsider no matter who he's with or where he goes whether he is home with his mother on travels with his brothers or in a foreign country abandoned by a former lover Taïa caught my attention with his emotional gutpunch of an essay in the New York Times about being a gay boy growing up in Morocco and this memoir cum novel holds just as much power and casts an even larger spell His astute perspective and lonely tone as an outsider and nomad with no true home reminded me of Damon Galgut's In a Strange Room My only drawback with this novel is that I wish I spoke French so I could read the original without the barrier of translation Highly recommend
