Summary
Charhadi's young narrator [Layachi] is a loner, always in dire poverty, and at turns a shepherd, a baker's helper, houseboy, a petty trafficker in kif, he is continually used, abused and cheated. Yet his optimism and faith in humanity is never dimmed despite betrayals, beatings and imprisonment in a rock quarry... And while the Koran is frequently cited to explain or justify particularly heavy blows of fate or irrational human behavior ("It's the will of Allah," etc.), it's also Layachi's ironic and cynical sense of humor that serves as a buffer between himself and life's harder edges and as a comic foil against the perpetrators of ill will. The story is set in Morocco, northern Africa. --Mark Terrill, et al at Amazon.com
