To celebrate the Morocco issue of Words without Borders, Prix Goncourt-winner Fouad Laroui and translator Emma Ramadan will read from their work and discuss the political and social context for Moroccan literature today—both in and outside the country. The conversation will be moderated by Adam Shatz, contributing editor at the London Review of Books.
Deep Vellum will publish Laroui’s English-language debut The Curious Case of Dassoukine’s Trousers in Emma Ramadan’s translation this summer, featuring an introduction by Laila Lalami. Read the title story from the collection at Words Without Borders, and preorder your copy today!
A co-presentation of Words Without Borders, the CUNY Center for the Humanities, and the Translation Mellon Seminar for Public Engagement and Collaborative Research.
