For bread alone

Moorishgirl points out that Paul Bowles' translation of Mohammed Choukri's For Bread Alone has been re-published:

Luckily for those of you who would like to finally get your hands on this seminal Moroccan novel, Telegram Books in the UK is re-issuing it this month, so I'll be sure to pick up a copy when I'm in London in July. You can also get it on You'd better get a copy and read it, or you are dead to me.

Damn right. Find out more about Choukri here.
