This is a brilliant and amusing small book of folk tales, several concerning Master Musicians of Joujouka -- the remote Moroccan Atlas mountain settlement from which comes some of the world's most fearsome, dissonant, mysterious and all-encompassing music. Blanca Nyland did the translation, which preserves (I hope it doesn't introduce) the plain-spoken but expressive, precise and bawdy language in which it was written. The book is magic, itself -- I almost expect the stories to be different every time I open it.
