ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Born in Algiers in 1970, Amara Lakhous left for Italy in 1995 during the Algerian civil war. His critically acclaimed novels include Clash of Civilizations over an Elevator in Piazza Vittorio (2008) and Divorce Islamic Style (2012). Using humor to explore the encounter of cultures, religions and languages, Lakhous’s work depicts the experience of exile and the dynamics of migration in the contemporary Mediterranean.

Lakhous was awarded Italy’s prestigious Premio Flaiano in 2006 and Algeria’s most prestigious literary award, the Prix des libraires algériens, in 2008. He currently lives in New York.
