"Mohammed Ahmed, a Moroccan girl raised as a boy in order to circumvent Islamic inheritance laws regarding female children, remains deeply conflicted about her identity.

Now calling herself Zahra, she renounces her role as only son and heir after her father's death and journeys through a dreamlike Moroccan landscape. A searing allegorical portrait of North African society, The Sacred Night uses Arabic fairy tales and surrealist elements to craft a stunning and disturbing vision of protest and rebellion against the strictures of hidebound traditions governing gender roles and sexuality."--BOOK JACKET

L'homme rompu : roman by Tahar Ben Jelloun ( Book )
25 editions published between 1994 and 2009 in French and held by 426 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
C'était vraiment un employé modèle, M. Mouloud. Un fonctionnaire d'une espèce en voie de disparition, à en croire l'auteur de ce bref roman dont le décor, aux contours volontairement flous, ne se dévoile aux yeux avertis que grâce à de rares détails précis, comme le nom d'une eau minérale de consommation courante là-bas. Ou de la monnaie, qui joue un très grand rôle dans l'intrigue. Serait-ce par trop violer la pudeur de Tahar Ben Jelloun que de révéler qu'il a, "quelque part", voulu mettre en scène (ou, c'est à la mode, en cause) son pays natal, le Maroc?

"Ce livre raconte le déséquilibre et les malentendus entre l'homme et la femme arabes. Les histoires qu'on y trouve ne parlent que d'amour, c'est-à-dire de solitude, de secret, et d'incompréhension. Et puis ce besoin d'amour devient vite une recherche de soi, car pour aimer l'autre, pour donner, il faut s'aimer un peu soi-même. Ce n'est pas si simple, dans un pays où la tradition et la religion aident surtout l'homme à asseoir sa petite puissance, alors même que rien ne peut s'y faire sans la femme." -- Book cover
