Summary
A chilling novel about a free-thinking bookseller who sacrifices everything to resist a fundamentalist regime. The Last Summer of Reason, found among assassinated Algerian writer Tahar Djaout's papers after his death, tells the elegant, haunting story of a bookseller's fight against against radical fundamentalism. This brief, intense novel is a powerful and timely indictment of terror and closed-mindedness throughout the world, and a fitting final statement from this acclaimed writer and tireless fighter for democracy
