Monarch of the Square : An Anthology of Muhammad Zafzaf's Short Stories, Paperback / softback Book

Monarch of the Square : An Anthology of Muhammad Zafzaf's Short Stories Paperback / softback

Part of the Middle East Literature in Translation series

Description

A master of the short story form, Muhammad Zafzaf is one of Morocco's greatest narrative writers.

This anthology, the first collection of his work translated into English, is a tribute to the remarkable influence he exerted on an entire generation of Moroccan storytellers. Zafzaf's stories are set within a variety of contexts, each portraying a slice of life, a simple struggle for survival in a challenging world that is changing at a rapid pace.

Narrative time is reduced to a single glimpse in these stories, full of irony, sarcasm, and sympathy.

He covers all aspects of Moroccan life, from remote rural villages to modern cities.

The stories in this collection explore the various myths, beliefs, and traditions that operate within Moroccan culture, questioning them from a distance in an easy, conversational manner that is the hallmark of Zafzaf's style.
