‘With this book, Abigail Assor announces herself as one of the most distinctive voices in North African literature. This is a vibrant, sensual, subversive novel with an unforgettable heroine.’ Leïla Slimani

As Rich as a King is Abigail Assor’s captivating first novel. Sarah is poor, but at least she’s French, which allows her to attend Casablanca’s elite high school for expats and wealthy locals. It’s there that she first lays eyes on Driss. Driss is older, quiet and, most importantly, wealthy. Sarah decides she wants a life like his. But to get to Driss she will have to cross the gaping divide that separates them and climb to the top of the city’s society. As Rich as the King is a twisted love story and a bittersweet ode to Casablanca.

‘Abigail Assor’s writing is precise, sensual, subversive and wildly lyrical. Astonishing.’ Le Parisien
