Kafka in Tangier, by Moroccan author Mohammed Said Hjiouij, is a masterful reinterpretation of Kafka's Metamorphosis, exploring themes of transformation, alienation, and power. At once the story of a family and a chilling portrait of a city, the novella follows Jawad Al-Idrisi, an overworked teacher with disappointed ambitions of becoming a literary critic, after he awakens one morning to find himself transformed into a monster. In this waking nightmare, he is forced to confront his family's secrets and the oppressive systems of contemporary society.
