A Beautiful White Cat Walks With Me
Youssef Fadel, translated by Alexander E. Elinson
£10.99 paperback The American University in Cairo Press (2016)
A modern Moroccan tale of power, love, and loss.
Hassan makes a living in his native Marrakesh as a comic writer and performer, through his satirical sketches critical of Morocco’s rulers. Yet when he is suddenly conscripted into a losing war in the Sahara, and drafted to a far-flung desert outpost, it seems that all is lost. Could his estranged father, close to power as the king’s private jester, have something to do with his sudden removal from the city? And will he ever see his beloved wife Zinab again?
With flowing prose and black humor, Youssef Fadel subtly tells the story of 1980s Morocco.
