Replay Event: The Art of Losing with Alice Zeniter

Author Alice Zeniter and literary critic Daneet Steffens joined us for a talk on Zeniter’s widely acclaimed, bestselling novel The Art of Losing (trans. Frank Wynne, ed. FSG). The Art of Losing is a moving family novel that spans three generations, seventy years, and two shores of the Mediterranean Sea. It is a resonant, accessible history of Algeria and the diaspora told by those who lived it. It is also the story of how we carry on in the face of loss: loss of a country, an identity, a language, a connection. And it is, ultimately, an immersive, unforgettable excavation of the personal legacies of colonialism, immigration, and war.

in order to support Albertine during these challenging times, we would greatly appreciate it if you purchased either a French or an English copy of The Art of Losing at our store or online.
