Sardines and Oranges
Short Stories from North Africa
edited by Peter Clark

5" x 7 3/4" • 221 pages
ISBN 9780954966614 • paperback • $15.00

Twenty-six hard-hitting, passionate, moving, funny and human stories from North Africa

Many of these authors are major literary figures in their own countries and the Arab world, who have broken with taboos and censorship, and established standards of innovation that have encouraged younger generations of authors.

“Pain, hardship, heartache, humour, identity, joy, loss and strategies for survival are universal themes and all are represented here,” writes Peter Clark, who edited and introduces the stories, and is one of the thirteen translators of the volume.

Featuring 21 authors:
Latifa Baqa, Ahmed Bouzfour, Rachida el-Charni, Mohamed Choukri, Mohammed Dib, Tarek Eltayeb, Mansoura Ezeldin, Gamal el-Ghitani, Said al-Kafrawi, Idriss el-Kouri, Ahmed el-Madini, Ali Mosbah, Hassouna Mosbahi, Muhammad Mustagab, Hassan Nasr, Rabia Raihane, Tayeb Salih, Habib Selmi, Izz al-Din Tazi and Mohammed Zefzaf.
