Fouad Laroui has crafted in his singular voice a powerful collection of eight short stories that are at times intelligent, funny, ironic, insightful and heart-breaking. He has chosen the multi-ethnic Moroccan identity as his subject that he treats in various connotations.

In the eponymous story of this collection, a widowed mother protects her modern, educated daughter from an inappropriate marriage proposition despite the disapproving eyes of her neighbors.

Laroui addresses the humiliation an Arab now living in Amsterdam could possibly feel seeing Saddam Hussein caught in his underground hole in The Day Saddam Was Hung.

The Crazy Numbers of DHJ is a hilarious telling of how the owner of a football team decides to change his players’ jersey numbers in order to confuse the opposing team. However, the only people he confuses are his own players.
