Mois Benarroch

Author 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.

This translation and many others were made through the site, it is a joint effort coming from the author and the translator.

This is independent publish at its best. Support the writers and the translators by buying and promoting the Bablecube translations.
