Description

This chapter examines Youssef Fadel’s trilogy about the recent history of Morocco to understand how the fictional representation of the violence/peace pairing intertwines with the ongoing reconciliation process in the country. Fadel’s novels shed light on contested memories, exposing several forms of violence across society and conceiving peace as something to be achieved through negotiations.
