About Older Brother

This poignant debut novel tells the story of a Franco-Syrian family whose father and two sons try to integrate themselves into a society that doesn’t offer them many opportunities.

You can find the book in French at our physical library La Médiathèque.

You can find information on the book in English on the British publisher website.
