Samira's Garden
(Les jardins de Samira)

by Latif LAHLOU


Marriage has become Samira’s reason for living. Her father has managed to find her a husband, a widowed farmer without any children. Samira soon discovers that her husband is impotent. He has in fact married her to conform to social conventions and to find a nurse to help his nephew Farouk to take care of his father. Her husband’s lack of affection and sexual interest become unbearable for Samira and, in order to remain a woman and resist the complete loss of meaning that her marriage implies, she is obliged to fill this void with fantasies.
