Abdellah Taïa on breaking the silence barrier. In his family and in his native country, homosexuality is surrounded by silence. All sorts of behaviors are tolerated if they are not spoken of — obviously an intolerable circumstance for a writer. Taïa amiably and sociably discusses the secrets he is no longer willing to keep.

  • Read an excerpt from Salvation Army.
