Fez - Many Moroccan writers of French expression blossomed and excelled in French literature better than the French themselves. Driss Chraibi, Abdellatif Laabi, Taher Ben Jelloun, Abdelkabir Khatibi, and Mohammed Berrada are a few Francophone Moroccan writers who have gained international acclaim for the quality of their literary achievements and won many distinguished awards.
