Blood Feast

This complete collection of short stories from the late Malika Moustadraf features poor and working-class Moroccans who are sometimes redeemable and sometimes not. These clever stories are about sexuality and gender norms, traditions and contradictions, the absence of choice, and all of them are properly short, to readers’ delight. Contemplative and even jocular, Blood Feast is a window into a niche Arab culture. Recommended by Mary
