STOLEN LIVES: Twenty Years in a Desert Jail
Edition: Later printing.
New York: Hyperion, (1999.) dj. ÔMalika Oufkir was the eldest born daughter of General Oufkir, the King of Morocco's closest aide; she was adopted at age five by the King and raised as a companion to his little daughter. Malika grew to become one of the most eligible heiresses in the kingdom, surrounded by luxury and privilege. But when her father attempted to assassinate the King, Malika, her five siblings, and her mother were immediately imprisoned in a penal colony. They endured twenty years of imprisonment, isolation and pain until their daring escape. Stolen Lives is a heart-rending account of resilience in the face of extreme deprivation, of the courage and even humor with which one family faced their tormented fate.Õ Translated by Ros Schwartz, 293 pp. ISBN: 0-7868-68619.
