Driss El Khouri is one of the most acclaimed Moroccan novelists. His books convey strongly the feel of everyday Moroccan life in coffee shops and other urban settings and show a firm commitment to representing the voices of marginalised members of society.

The poetry festival in Rabat in 2004 was held in honour of El Khouri.
