The Prince who Ghazed at his Own Soul
(Bab ' Aziz)

by Nacer KHEMIR


Ishtar is a little girl who guides Bab’Aziz, an old blind dervish, through the desert to attend a big meeting of dervishes. Just like in a treasure hunt, they get to cross the paths of several characters : twin brothers Hussein and Hassan, with very different temperaments, the prince who decided to build a palace in the middle of the desert, Osman who is trying to leave the country and Nour looking for his father.All these stories interweave around Bab’Aziz like a dream “which is within another dream and so on until the infinity of grains of sand.” (Borges)
