"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. In a narrative that shifts in and out of reality moving between a mysterious present and a painful past, Ben Jelloun relates the events of Ahmed's adult life. 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."--Jacket
Monnè, outrages et défis by Ahmadou Kourouma( Book )

"Désobéissant à Samory, empereur de tout le pays mandingue, le roi de Soba, Djigui Kéfta, n'a pas rasé sa ville à l'arrivée des troupes coloniales - sûr que la magie des ancêtres, la protection d'Allah et la muraille édifiée à la hâte suffiraient à repousser les " Nazaréens". Ceux-ci prennent donc Soba sans coup férir. Mais tandis que les griots chantent la gloire de Djigui Keita et de ses cent vingt années de règne, le roi déchu s'enfonce dans une colla boration de plus en plus meurtrière avec l'occupant. Sous l'épopée tragique et dérisoire d'un peuple livré à la colonisation, perce la satire des Etats africains modernes livrés à leurs démons, et un réquisitoire aussi drôle que violent contre ces conformismes qui mènent parfois aux pires compromissions
