Tunisian Novelist and Essayist Albert Memmi Dies at 99 — ArabLit & ArabLit Quarterly

“Many will paint Memmi as a Tunisian author to lend credibility to an imagined version of early 20th c. Tunisia: cosmopolitan, multi-confessional. In my opinion this is not only inaccurate, it runs against Memmi’s thought on the nuances of belonging and the workings of colonialism.”
