It is meant to provide the reader, specialist or general, with a colourful variety of narratives, reflecting the whole culture of a nation where East and West meet in harmony. The Moroccan short story has certainly benefited from the achievements of the short story in the Eastern and Western worlds, but it has never lost its local flavor, making use of its setting, legends, folk tales and proverbs. Hence, the Moroccan writer has never severed his ties with his national and cultural heritage, always preserving his originality, authenticity and identity. The convergence of Eastern and Western cultures in Morocco can only make its literature richer, more varied and colorful and less shut upon itself." -- Provided by publisher.
