Fatna El Bouih was first arrested in Casablanca as an 18-year-old student leader with connections to the Marxist movement. Over the next decade she was rearrested, forcibly disappeared, tortured, and transferred between multiple prisons. While imprisoned, she helped organize a hunger strike, completed her undergraduate degree in sociology, and began work on a Master's degree. Beginning with the harrowing account of her kidnapping during the heightened political tension of the 1970s, "Talk of Darkness" tells the true story of one woman's struggle to secure political prisoners' rights and defend herself against an unjust imprisonment. Poetically rendered from Arabic into English by Mustapha Kamal and Susan Slyomovics, Fatna El Bouih's memoir exposes the techniques of state-instigated 'disappearance' in Morocco and condemns the lack of laws to protect prisoners' basic human rights.
