Even though he is the son of a Dutch mother, Saeed has a Moroccan first name in memory of the virtuoso oud player his mother fell in love with twenty years ago. When she found out she was pregnant, he ran off and returned to Morocco. Saeed decides to look for his father, in the hope of finding a new identity in a new world. His childhood friend Hassan accompanies him. Back then they shared an imaginary land which they both ruled. Now they only have one starting point: a grocery shop in Fez. From there they follow the trail of the oud player, who leads them from the cedar woods of Ifrane to the red dunes of the desert to the high Atlas, where Kasbahs are locked in a losing battle with decay. Saeed's search sends him deeper into disillusionment and into the arms of Islam, where he tries to find something to hold on to. But there is a disturbing presence. A seemingly fictitious character from their imaginary past infiltrates Saeed's quest. While Saeed desperately tries to get rid of him, different aspects of his life, more and more beyond his control, reach an apotheosis resulting in one final deed affecting man and beast alike.

About the Author:

Tessa de Loo's novel The Twins was translated into 25 languages. She is also the author of In Byron's Footsteps (Haus). She lives Portugal and Paris and is one of the most successful contemporary writers in the Dutch language.

Review:

'Written without rose tinted glasses or succumbing to cliches .. De Loo is and remains an authentic born story teller.' Rotterdams Dagblad 'Imagination and violence play a big part in Tessa de Loo's 6th novel, and the first 'big' one since THE TWINS. It is also a very relevant novel. [The Book of Doubt] takes on many contemporary themes: the clash between religions, displacement, migration, friendship. Together with the original theme of the search for identity, that makes of [The Book of Doubt] a great novel. The search for the father is described in such detail that the desert sand practically crunches between the pages.' Parool
