Gilles, by Pierre Drieu la Rochelle

Best known in the English speaking world for his book Le Feu Follet, which has been adopted into several films, Pierre Drieu la Rochelle considered the semi-autobiographical Gilles to be his greatest work. The literary critic Gaëtan Picon wrote that Gilles “is, without any doubt, one of the greatest novels of the century—and one of those books in which the disarming sincerity of a man rises to the grandeur usually reserved to literary transpositions.”


Travels in Algeria, by Alexis de Tocqueville

Two narratives describing the effects of colonialism and modernity when imposed from outside on an unwilling people. The twin impulses to stay and fight, or to flee and preserve, and how it seizes suddenly whole populations of people and subjects them at once to violence and anarchy. Together, both are intended to provide a holistic view of the experiences, the aspirations, the quiet sufferings, and the triumphs of different populations living on the periphery of colonial societies.
