Malika Moustadraf; Alice Guthrie

Malika Moustadraf is a cult feminist icon in contemporary Moroccan literature, celebrated for her uncompromising depiction of life on the margins. Something Strange, Like Hunger, presents Moustadraf's collected short fiction: haunting, visceral stories by a master of the genre.

Here, we tune into Casablanca's unheard: a sex worker struggling to keep warm on the streets; a housewife flirting with strangers online; a kidney patient, priced out of treatment, facing the harsh reality of his condition; and a mother scheming to ensure her daughter passes a virginity test.

Something Strange, Like Hunger, is a sharp provocation to patriarchal power and a celebration of the life and genius of one of Morocco's preeminent writers.
