The Sacred Night
La Nuit sacrée

Coincidence? Travel the World With Books (#TTWIB) decided to focus on North African authors this month, and Morocco happened to be the country featured at the Paris Book Fair this year. Great opportunity to read a Moroccan novelist, with this little book found on my shelf: La Nuit sacrée, which received the Prix Goncourt in 1987.

 

Coïncidence? Le groupe de Travel the World With Books (#TTWIB) a choisi de se concentrer sur les auteurs nord-africains, et le Maroc était le pays à l’honneur au Salon du Livre de Paris cette année.

MY THOUGHTS ABOUT THIS BOOK

  Eiffel-Tower#2  Eiffel-Tower#2

Writing this review turned out to be just as challenging as reading Gustave Flaubert: The Ambiguity of Imagination. And if you happen to read the synopsis, you will be even more confused: they talk about a certain Harel Bey, but he does not appear in the book until page 63. Before that, I had a hard time understanding what was going on, I even had to restart reading the whole book. There were some very interesting elements however.
