Jimmy (jimmylorunning) | 94 comments Ahmed Bouanani -- 1938-2011 -- Moroccan film director and author -- 14 ratings and 2 reviews over 4 distinct works. His book The Hospital has recently been translated into English by New Directions:

"Like Sadegh Hedayat’s The Blind Owl, the works of Franz Kafka—or perhaps like Mann’s The Magic Mountain thrown into a meat-grinder—The Hospital is a nosedive into the realms of the imagination, in which a journey to nowhere in particular leads to the most shocking places."

Nate D (rockhyrax) | 354 comments Likely in the midst of unburying today, since the New Directions version should have come out. Must find a copy! Thanks Jimmy.
