Infidels : a novel by Abdellah Taïa( Book )

4 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in English and Spanish and held by 168 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Set in Sale, Morocco-the hometown Abdellah TaIa fled but to which he returns again and again in his acclaimed fiction and films-Infidels follows the life of Jallal, the son of a prostitute witch doctor-"a woman who knew men, humanity, better than anyone. In sex. Beyond sex." As a ten-year-old sidekick to his mother, Jallal spits in the face of her enemies both real and imagined. The cast of characters that rush into their lives are unforgettable for their dreams of love and belonging that unravel in turn. Built as a series of monologues that are emotionally relentless-a mix of confession, heart's murmuring, and shouting match-the book follows Jallal out of boyhood on the path to Jihad. It's a path that surprises even him. From the Hardcover edition

Nouvelles du Maroc( Book )

1 edition published in 2011 in French and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A l'extrême ouest du Maghreb, tête de pont vers les Amériques, point de passage vers l'Europe par le détroit de Gibraltar, le Maroc est un carrefour d'influences unique au monde où se mélangent modernité et traditions. Son ancrage dans la civilisation arabo-musulmane est total et les splendeurs de son patrimoine sont restés intactes. Mais, ni plus ni moins que dans d'autres pays de la rive sud de la Méditerranée, le "printemps arabe", qui débuta avec le geste désespéré d'un jeune Tunisien, résonne ici aussi dans toutes les têtes. Si ces révolutions ont un visage, c'est celui de la jeunesse. Et avec le surgissement de cette brûlante soif de liberté, la liberté de penser et d'écrire s'est également manifestée, comme en attestent les textes pour certains très étonnants de ce recueil. Ils sont l'expression incontestable d'un moment historique, revendiqué par de jeunes écrivains, hommes et femmes, qui s'expriment haut et fort, parfois avec des mots crus, sur le sexe, la drogue, la religion, la violence politique, la situation des femmes : tout ce qui pouvait être tabou jusqu'ici. Ce recueil s'inscrit plus que jamais dans l'actualité et démontre que la littérature peut dire autrement le monde qui change. -- Back cover
