Title: For Bread Alone

Author: Mohamed Choukri, Paul Bowles (trans.)

Description: "The Moroccan writer Mohamed Choukri was born in 1935 at Beni Chiker. After the great famine in the Rif he arrived in Tangier, where he grew up in conditions of extreme poverty. He relates in vivid detail his erotic adventures in the back streets of North African cities, his encounters with thieves, prostitutes, and smugglers. This masterfully written autobiography chronicles both the misery and the strange liberty of life in conditions once common in colonial North Africa."

"For Bread Alone is a in the classic picaresque tradition of The Satyricon and The Unfortunate Traveller: one god-damned thing after another. Choukri's life has been a journey of discovery in a part of the world where beneath what is hidden, is hidden yet something more" - William Burroughs.
