Le Monde on Douaihy’s Printed in Beirut: “A fake thriller, but a real comedy”, “Elegant” and “far from stereotypes”

By Florence Noiville, for Le Monde, publisher on December 21st, 2017

Lebanese novelist Jabbour Douaihy offers a fake thriller, but a real comedy, tribute to Arabic writing and printing.
Here is a Lebanese novel that is far from the stereotypes of Europeans on Middle Eastern literature. There are no reminiscences of war, no religious questions, no community issues. It is about Beirut, the history of which is told through that of a printing press, starting 1914. But it is also about the laughable posture of the contemporary writer.
From the first lines, the humor of Jabbour Douaihy prevails.
