Mois Benarrochabout this book: This is a very autobiographical novel about a travel to Spain in 2010 in which I met Moroccan Jews from all over the world. it is part fiction, part travel and part diary. It did happen in a very hard time in my life when my best friend and my sister passes away within a few month. This is also a meditation on the death of people as well as the death of a whole culture. The encounter was festive but it probably descrives the last Jews born in Morocco and speakers of Jaquetia.
The whole quest is represented by a lost scarf found in Seville and relost in Madrid, it serves as an anchor and symbol to this rich cultural world in transition.
