Reviews
"With this novel, Ben Jelloun, a native of Morocco, gives us an unvarnished look at a Muslim's life in the West, and reminds us that literature can help us understand one another." --Minneapolis Star Tribune

"In any language, Tahar Ben Jelloun would be a remarkable novelist." --Sunday Telegraph (London)

"What Ben Jelloun does brilliantly is write with a kind of refreshing candor that demystifies the Arab world." --Paris Voice
