    PDF Abdellah Taïa ð ð L'Armée du Salut eBook ß L'Armée du Epub / l'armée pdf, salut pdf, L'Armée du book, L'Armée du Salut PDF/EPUBA perplexing achievement The language used creates a distance between the text and the reader The story is fairly common yet the result in somehow mysterious The language is very straightforward yet Taia comes off as profound One wonders how much of this is the translation and how much is due to Taia's mother tongue So much of our thinking is shaped by language instead of thinking doing the shaping and yet this influence is all but invisible to most peopleI hope to have a chance to read this short autobiographical novel againUPDATE Read this again in November 2016 Saw the movie and then searched out the book only to realize I had already read it the movie is only loosely based on the book So perhaps everything seems straightforward now because I've read it twice and see

    PDF Abdellah Taïa ð ð L'Armée du Salut eBook ß L'Armée du Epub / l'armée pdf, salut pdf, L'Armée du book, 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
