A coming out book in a culture where homosexuality is criminal this memoir is of interest from the comparative cultural point of view today or even in the 80s but I don t see that it offers much for those of us who grew up in the 50s and 60s It all sounds very familiar Ta a was about 33 when he published his memories of being a teen He comes off as being naive affectionate smart a nice guy I d like to know He tells his story without shame I wonder how looking at his teen years from the point of of a 33 yo romanticized his story I wonder too how successful he was in actualizing his needs listed at the end of the book One suspects he was fairly successful It is written in a vignette rapid fire style which is easily read in an evening I wished the vignettes had been fleshed out detailed there are things I d like to know about being Gay in Morocco the conflict of being Moslem and Gay eg I would imagine the book of most interest to Gays living in Morocco today It is a positive look at being a Moroccan Gay even if living as such means crossing the seaThe book is certainly worth a read I doubt it is worth a re read

Having Edmund White write the introduction to this autobiographical novel is uite ironic Ta a became the first openly gay Arab writer in 2006 expanding his repertoire to filmmaking since then I think he remains the only openly gay Arab writer which says a lot about homosexuality and IslamIt also means that the introduction by White can be read as a kind of cultural appropriation This is a great and important book because White says it is White by default is the kind of man of letters that Ta a according to Western culture must aspire to becoming Especially if he is gayFortunately despite White s typically florid introduction trust him to hone in on the detail of Ta a sniffing cum stains on his brother s underpants this book is able to stand on its own The translation is a bit roughshod with a lot of grammatical and editing errors but it is this essential rawness of the text that adds so much to its powerWhite does manage to highlight the indelible sadness imbued in these pages entitling his introduction Love and Loneliness The one line that stood out for me is his comment that this is almost parenthetically a book about the love of men for men Despite some potently erotic and incredibly evocative scenes a group masturbation session in a public toilet in Geneva a threesome with two strangers on a train larger uestions such as Ta a coming out to his family or perhaps his brother s ultimate reaction to his unreuited love are barely hinted atInstead these sorts of uestions are subsumed in larger uestions of identity and diaspora as in Ta a s complex and tempestuous relationship with Jean from Switzerland a relationship that can never transcend its transactional nature being so much younger Ta a is automatically seen as using the only currency available to him to buy his way out of a poor working class destiny in a rundown Rabat neighbourhood his bodyOf course the larger transactional relationship that dominates the book is the fraught love hate affair between postmodern Europe and postcolonial Africa especially the West s rather jaundiced view of Islam and Arab culture in general which is seen as being inherently regressive and oppressiveTa a s honesty here is uite searing The section where he arrives in Geneva only to be abandoned and left to his own devices in a foreign country culture and city by the foreigner who initially seduced him or was it the other way around would have embittered most people I thinkBut here Ta a finds an inner strength and an abiding faith in the goodness of people that is truly inspiring So in one sense it is perhaps fitting that Edmund White himself points us to this book which remains a beacon of how books can transform both lives and perceptions
