"Bye Bye Saddam" generational novel about the first Gulf War in the eyes of Moroccan children. The story takes place in the late eighties and is told by ten year old Nayzak who has his own magical way at telling what he manages to remember, where real life events get mixed with details from his own little world. Nayzak was born and raised into a leftist family, and although he had no idea what ‘left’ meant, he could tell it was about opposing whose pictures where hanging all over the place.
