Juliane (libristar) Elias Canetti "Voices Of Marrakesh" (not by a Moroccan author, but about Morocco, a classical one); Abdelhak Serhane "Messaouda"

Juliane (libristar) Ok, sorry... so just ignore that.

I think people interested in international literature would be interested in books "about" countries as well. IMHO, we don't need to be so exact.

Sarah (ssweaver) "Dreams of Trespass" by Fatima Mernissi is a good book by a Moroccan about Morocco. She also wrote several other excellent books.

Elatsoe Stan | 30 comments Laila Lalami's book "Hope and Other Dangerous Pursuits" is a beautiful book (written by a Moroccan in part about Morocco, but really more about the human condition and the idea of home). Its prose is spare so it's a quick but enjoyable read.

Really great book, I agree.
