"Mohammed Ahmed, a Moroccan girl raised as a boy in order to circumvent Islamic inheritance laws regarding female children, remains deeply conflicted about her identity. In a narrative that shifts in and out of reality moving between a mysterious present and a painful past, Ben Jelloun relates the events of Ahmed's adult life. Now calling herself Zahra, she renounces her role as only son and heir after her father's death and journeys through a dreamlike Moroccan landscape. A searing allegorical portrait of North African society, The Sacred Night uses Arabic fairy tales and surrealist elements to craft a stunning and disturbing vision of protest and rebellion against the strictures of hidebound traditions governing gender roles and sexuality."--Jacket

"Restons ce corps cassé qui ne dit pas le malheur mais qui regarde le ciel et se souvient de la forêt décimée. Nous sommes un pays déboisé de ses hommes. Des arbres arrachés à la terre, comptabilisés et envoyés au froid. Quand nous arrivons en France, nos branches ne sont plus lourdes ; les feuilles sont légères ; elles sont mortes. Nos racines sont sèches et nous n'avons pas soif. Si je nous compare à un arbre, c'est parce que tout tend à mourir en nous et la sève ne coule plus. Tout le monde trouve 'normal' ce déboisement sélectif. Mais que peut un arbre arraché à l'aube de sa vie? Que peut un corps étranger dans une terre fatiguée?"--Book cover

Et puis ce besoin d'amour devient vite une recherche de soi, car pour aimer l'autre, pour donner, il faut s'aimer un peu soi-même. Ce n'est pas si simple, dans un pays où la tradition et la religion aident surtout l'homme à asseoir sa petite puissance, alors même que rien ne peut s'y faire sans la femme."--Book cover

L'homme rompu : roman by Tahar Ben Jelloun( Book )
26 editions published between 1994 and 2009 in French and held by 423 libraries worldwide
C'était vraiment un employé modèle, M. Mouloud. Un fonctionnaire d'une espèce en voie de disparition, à en croire l'auteur de ce bref roman dont le décor, aux contours volontairement flous, ne se dévoile aux yeux avertis que grâce à de rares détails précis, comme le nom d'une eau minérale de consommation courante là-bas. Ou de la monnaie, qui joue un très grand rôle dans l'intrigue. Serait-ce par trop violer la pudeur de Tahar Ben Jelloun que de révéler qu'il a, "quelque part", voulu mettre en scène (ou, c'est à la mode, en cause) son pays natal, le Maroc?

By the author of With Downcast Eyes
