Aaliya's Book Club - 'Exile and the Kingdom' by Camus
At this Aaliya’s book club we will be mixing things up, reading not a novel, but a collection of short stories from the uniquely talented and thought-provoking Albert Camus.
‘Exile and the Kingdom,’ is made up of six short stories, each one dealing with the theme of isolation, often touching on his own melancholy towards his native Algeria as he straddles the line between French and Muslim cultures (a topic I am sure has no parallels in Lebanon).
Steeped in Camus’s own form of existential philosophy and simple writing style the stories are a great introduction to his work and an often-overlooked work for those who have read Camus’s classics.
Excited to see you all there, you can pick up a copy of the book at Aaliya's Books
