From Library Journal This semiautobiographical novel by Moroccan storyteller Mrabet offers glimpses from the life of a young Moroccan at the service of an affluent European, with the northern Moroccan scenery as background. The stories are both amusing and sensual. North Africa has been one of the last theaters of nostalgia for many Westerners. Yet the tension between two cultures surfaces again and again throughout the stories Mrabet tells. This heavily illustrated novel is one of many works translated from the Moghrebi by the American composer and writer Paul Bowles. Recommended for most libraries.
