Straight From The Horse's Mouth : A Novel

Alaoui, Meryem, Ramadan, Emma More by this author...£14.99

"Jmiaa, a prostitute in Casablanca, lives alone with her daughter. A woman of strong character and quick wit, she doesn't hold back when describing the world around her: her lover Chaèiba, a crude, wordless brute, or Halima, her depressed fellow prostitute who reads the Qur'an between clients, or Mouy, her mother with implacable moral standards who seems completely ignorant of her daughter's work. Then along comes a young woman, Chadlia--dubbed 'Horse Mouth' by Jmiaa--who wants to make her first film about the life of this Casa neighborhood. She's looking for an actress"--Provided by publisher.
