The Stars of Sidi Moumen (2010) of Mahi Binebine is a francophone Moroccan novel that clearly illustrates the current interest of the Moroccan writers to all aspects of daily life of individuals and society. It is an expression of the writer's citizenship, but also a literary creation and contribution as citizen. It is a text that illustrates the interactions between literature and the lived space of everyday life, knowing that the space referred to in this novel is a space of non-space: a spatial and human chaos of Sidi Moumen slum in Casablanca. It would therefore be interesting to see how the social context, which serves as base to literary works, is reinstated in the context of the imaginary, questioning the definitions that tend to separate literature from the real or the surrounding world and to query the effects of place on individual behaviors and the shaping of identity tensions to the point of making "murderous identities" in the words of Maalouf. Indeed, from the status of children "slum" to that of children suicide bombers "kamikazes," the reader is faced with a trajectory that reflects human frailty, from simple individual disillusionment to a real disenchantment fed by social criticism. © 2016 Taylor & Francis.
