This is a prize-winning novel which pits father against daughters and duty against desire. Straight-talking and fiery, Mimoun's daughter is everything he wishes she weren't. When he leaves Morocco for Catalonia, he wants to improve his own life without allowing European culture to affect his wife and children at all. He expects them to stay in their village, while he enjoys the freedom and sophistication of Barcelona. His plans are thrown into disarray when his family insists on joining him in Catalonia. Things get much worse when his daughter starts reading the dictionary, and taking on the Catalans in their own language...
