Product Description

Inspector Ali is interrupted in the middle of a love serenade: Scotland Yard needs his services. Moroccan princess Yasmina has been found dead at Trinity College, Cambridge. Was it murder or suicide? A lover of poetry and beautiful women, the famous inspector plays the fool to uncover the truth. Will his whimsical investigative methods work?

Driss Chraïbi (1926-2007) was born in Morocco. Considered one of Morocco's greatest French-language writers, he has received numerous literary awards. Une enquête au pays and L'Inspecteur Ali et la CIA, two other investigations by Inspector Ali, are available in Points.

"Driss Chraïbi is and will remain the rebel of Moroccan literature"

Moroccan author whose novels deal with colonialism, culture clashes, generational conflict and the treatment of women and are often perceived as semi-autobiographical

Born in El Jadida and educated in Casablanca, Chraïbi went to Paris in 1945 to study chemistry before turning to literature and journalism. His works have been translated into English, Arabic, Italian, German and Russian. He viewed himself as an anarchist, writing on issues such as immigration, patriarchy and the relation between the west and the Arab world
