From the introduction by Yassin Adnan:

Only palm trees remember that remote dark past, when highwaymen lay in wait behind their trunks for passing caravans...According to some stories, this is where the city's name originated. Over the centuries the name has lost much of its caution and blackness...Moroccans today call Marrakech "The Joyful City," or simply "The Joyful." For the city is pledged to joy. The seekers of happiness and soirées head for it. Its nights are well lit and its days are bright. The city's lovers are ready to read every type of story about it except those garbed in black. Even the city's leading authors, the storytellers of Jamaa al-Fana, have always avoided in their fascinating halqas dark tales and stories...

In all their variety these stories remain rooted in the Moroccan soil. Marrakech, the ancient Moroccan city, the country's capital of tourism, the city of joy and sadness, the city of simple life, the city linked to the most international capitals through daily flights from its international airport, the city of the new European community, a winter resort for French retirees, and a refuge for immigrants from sub-Saharan Africa, the city of red nights and sex tourism, the city of the new generation of crimes...
