[Talk] Meeting with the author Alice Kaplan

PRESENTATION OF HER FIRST NOVEL, MAISON ATLAS

Hosted by Marie-Pierre Ulloa

Friday, July 22 at 7pm

Camargo Foundation - 15, avenue Ganteaume, 13 260 Cassis

 

Former fellow at the Camargo Foundation and member of the Board of Trustees, Alice Kaplan is a writer, academic and historian. She teaches at Yale University. Following her work on memory and autobiography, in 2003 she published an investigation of the Brasillach trial (Intelligence with the Enemy, winner of the Los Angeles Times Book Award) based on archival material about the postwar French literary scene. After focusing on Albert Camus' Algeria in In Search of the Stranger, Alice Kaplan crossed the Mediterranean to write her first novel, Maison Atlas.

In the early 1990s, Emily left Minnesota to settle in Bordeaux. On the university benches, she meets Daniel Atlas, an Algerian Jew with whom she falls in love. He is still a young dandy when the civil war tears his country apart, forcing him to leave Emily and France. Back in El Biar, his childhood neighborhood, Daniel finds his parents isolated and threatened. This illustrious family of shopkeepers, who lived in colonized and then independent Algeria, has chosen to remain in this land against all odds. Many years later, Becca, a young American woman, will also make the trip to Algiers to better understand their lineage.
