A Palace in the Old Village by Tahar Ben Jelloun


A story of an outsider emigrant in France. A Moroccan who has never truly left home and because of this he loses his children to LaFrance, as he calls it.

It is a sad story about how when we leave a place it does not stand still and the disillusionment of dreams that never become fulfilled. Ben Jelloun is a master writer.
