After almost two decades of working in publishing, and a few round trips between Paris and New York, Miriam has decided to settle down at Albertine to do what she enjoys most: recommending books she loves. Somehow this also includes taking bizarre pictures for Albertine's social media outlets.

Borges, Yambo Ouologuem and Roberto Bolano as his sources of inspiration. If the expression “writer of the world” means anything, then Mbougar Sarr is -- unarguably-- one of its most talented and fierce figures.

Like any account of a successful utopia, Les Étoiles les plus filantes takes us along on an exhilarating adventure and invites us to reflect on the power of great stories – stories where heroes rise above their own condition to break glass ceilings.
