Tales of Tangier: The Complete Short Stories of Mohamed Choukri, Translated by Jonas Elbousty
The complete short stories of acclaimed Moroccan author Mohamed Choukri, translated into English and collected in one volume for the first time
Choukri says that "writing is a protest, not a parade." And in these thirty-one stories he privileges the voices of those ignored by society: the abused, the abandoned, the addicted. The tales are at once vibrant local vignettes and profound reflections on the lives, sufferings, and hopes of Choukri's fellow Tangerines.
