"Restons ce corps cassé qui ne dit pas le malheur mais qui regarde le ciel et se souvient de la forêt décimée. Nous sommes un pays déboisé de ses hommes. Des arbres arrachés à la terre, comptabilisés et envoyés au froid. Quand nous arrivons en France, nos branches ne sont plus lourdes ; les feuilles sont légères ; elles sont mortes. Nos racines sont sèches et nous n'avons pas soif. Si je nous compare à un arbre, c'est parce que tout tend à mourir en nous et la sève ne coule plus. Tout le monde trouve 'normal' ce déboisement sélectif. Mais que peut un arbre arraché à l'aube de sa vie? Que peut un corps étranger dans une terre fatiguée?"--Book cover

"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

3 editions published between 1995 and 1998 in Italian and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"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
