Inhalt
Salé, near Rabat. The 1980s. A lower-class teenager is running until he's out of breath. He's running after his dream, his dream to become a movie director. He's running after the Egyptian movie star, Souad Hosni, who's out there somewhere, miles away from this neighborhood - which is a place the teenager both loves and hates, the home at which he is not at home, an environment that will only allow him his identity through the cultural lens of shame and silence. Running is the only way he can stand up to the violence that is his Morocco. This autobiographical novel traces the emergence of Taia's identity as an openly gay Arab man living between cultures. The book spans 20 years, moving from Salé, to Paris, to Cairo. Part incantation, part polemic, and part love letter, this novel creates a new world where the self is effaced by desire and love.
