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.

From the first lines, the humor of Jabbour Douaihy prevails.
