From 'Morocco's greatest living author' (The Guardian) comes a heartbreaking novel about parents and children, the powerful pull of home and the yearning for tradition and family. Mohammed has spent the past 40 years working in France. As he approaches retirement, he takes stock of his life - his devotion to Islam and to his assimilated children - and decides to return to Morocco, where he spends his life's savings building the biggest house in the village and waiting for his children and grandchildren to come and be with him.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'With this novel, Ben Jelloun, a native of Morocco, gives us an unvarnished look at a Muslim's life in the West, and reminds us that literature can help us understand one another.'

* Minneapolis Star Tribune *

'In any language, Tahar Ben Jelloun would be a remarkable novelist.'

* Sunday Telegraph *

'What Ben Jelloun does brilliantly is write with a kind of refreshing candor that demystifies the Arab world.'

* Paris Voice *
