Books Info:

One-way free pdf ONE-WAY RECOUNTS THE COMIC, ABSURD, AND ALL-TOO-believable adventures of Aziz Kemal, a young Frenchman raised as an Arab by Marseille gypsies. Arrested for a crime he did not commit, Aziz becomes the target of a government campaign to repatriate illegal immigrants and finds himself en route to Morocco, despite the fact that he is not Moroccan. Accompanying Aziz is a touchingly naive and neurotic "humanitarian attache" named Jean-Pierre Schneider, who drowns his own personal woes in his zeal to build a new life for his charge in a land neither one has ever seen.
