Hot Maroc

Yassin Adnan

Synopsis:

Hot Maroc is a novel about the changing face of Morocco: about Marrakech and the effects of ruralisation, the university and its student movement, internet cafés and hackers, daily life and human nature, politics and journalism, and bizarre election campaigns in a country where people do not vote. It is about Rahhal Laâouina, the slow-witted coward who becomes a hero in his dreams and online, whether on facebook or the news site called "Hot Maroc".
