Liverpool University Press

In this chapter, I conduct an analysis of language, temporalities, transfiliations, and baraka (meaning “luck,” “chance,” “blessings” or what I’ll call “knowledge”) in the life and work of Abdellah Taïa, one of the first Moroccan authors to write publicly about his own homosexuality and to depict homosexual Moroccan protagonists alongside a variety of other queer and non-queer characters in his autofiction.

Keywords:   citizenship, kinship, filiation, flexible language, North-African, queer, sexuality, temporalities
