Description
In English translation, a powerful novel explores power, love, and loss in Morocco by award-winning Moroccan author Youssef Fadel (b.1949). A Rare Blue Bird Flies with Me: 1990; Zina receives a handwritten note from her husband, Aziz, who disappeared the day after their wedding, 18 years previously, after participating in the failed coup against King Hassan II in 1972, a period known as the Years of Cinders and Lead. It propels Zina on a final quest for a secret desert jail in southern Morocco, where her husband crouches in despair, dreaming of his former life. Told by multiple narrators, moving back and forth between 1990 and the past, the story recounts the circumstances that brought Zina and Aziz together and the imprisonment that tore them apart.

Paperback, 235 pages.
20.3 x 13cm.
