Translation: Luc-Willy Deheuvels
Mysterious and bewitching novel which translates the existential questions of a great Palestinian author.
It is said in a tale that a prince fell in love with a common woman and married her. He was so passionately in love with it that he offered him an ancient palace he inherited from his father, and which he greatly valued. He revealed to his wife, the day he installed her, that the palace consisted of forty rooms. She could freely dispose of thirty-nine of them, but the fortieth was forbidden to her.
