From author Belhaouari Abdelilah comes a fascinating novel that will let readers into the life of A Migrant from Morocco.

Arab world, third world, backward societies, under-developed countries, unchanging realities: a political status quo whose legitimacy few people could question until very recently when the riots of “the Arab spring” broke out and took the world unaware. A Migrant from Morocco describes where unrest takes root and what soil renders the growing of freedom inevitable. Hady Hayat, the major character of this novel, begins his struggle in Morocco, his native land, and when he fails, he turns to Europe but finds little to pin his hopes upon.

Although autobiographical in nature, A Migrant from Morocco is a fiction. As a political novel, it gives readers an intimate glimpse of the life of the minorities in France, and the political regime in Morocco. As well, it covers other relevant issues such as immigration, Islam, and more. Readers will find themselves engrossed in this compelling story.
