Fugitive Light
A Novel

Mohamed Berrada

Cloth $19.95    |    0-8156-0749-0    |   2002

Quick Read
"When I mix my colors and begin to paint, the luminosity surrounding me begins to be transferred to my canvas as a piercing brilliance, from whose flashes filters the hue of a light that is diffused as it embodies the contours of my dream's space. Running after the fugitive light is an act full of torment but it exudes pleasure and the enticements of mirage . . . It can never be compared to the sterile act of searching for words to capture shreds of stored feelings

Who among us does not run away from something? I return to my lines and colors: I run away from the words of these memoirs and renounce the illusion of recording through them the experiences I lived. I am content to repeat: What's gone is gone, light and color remain for me as well as space, of which I dream through them. . . . Everything else is prattle and sermonizing blown by the winds."
from Fugitive Light

An Arabic artist in Tangier grapples with political and erotic issues in this pivotal work by the most celebrated Moroccan author of the past twenty-five years.

Translated by Issa J. Boullata
