Rue du Retour
By Abdellatif Laabi
Translated from the French by Jacqueline Kaye
The introduction by Maghreb scholar Victor Reinking and preface by fellow poet Breyten Breytenbach help readers to understand the book in its own time, as well as in the wider context of Middle Eastern narrative and universal traditions of prison meditation.
"A stunning mosaic of memoirs, letters and stories of his journey
back to freedom."
"This intense prose poem often attains a hallucinatory fervor"
