Literary Connections: Marquez and Kamel Daoud

‘I’ve always understood everything except death,’ she said. – Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Of Love and Other Demons (117)

‘Death – when I received it, when I gave it – is for me the only mystery. All the rest is nothing but rituals, habits, and dubious bonding.’ – Kamel Daoud, The Meursault Investigation (115)
