Algerian novelist Kamel Daoud sparks Islamophobia row
by Hugh Schofield
If you want a reminder of how fractious life can feel in modern-day Europe, then take a look at the furious row in France over the writings of Kamel Daoud.
Kamel Daoud is the Algerian novelist who came within an ace of winning France's top book award - the Goncourt - last year for his Camus-inspired The Meursault Investigation.
He is also an independent-minded newspaper journalist, who has won as many enemies as friends over the years for his critical articles about the state of his country.
