More Information

Now living in the United States, where he teaches comparative literature, André Aciman has charmed readers with reflections on his childhood in Egypt and the ramifications of being exiled from one's homeland. His 1994 book, Out of Egypt: A Memoir, and his 2000 collection of essays, False Papers: Essays on Exile and Memory, earned him a reputation as a skilled writer and a careful, engaging observer on the subjects of home and family.
