The African Shore is a short novel, divided into three parts — and a total of five chapters, each of which is further divided into shorter sub-chapters. Set in Tangier, on Morocco’s coast, it shifts between two stories: that of Hamsa, a young local shepherd with greater ambitions, and that of a Colombian tourist who loses his passport and extends his stay as he waits to get a new one. The characters do eventually meet, and there are connections between them, but Rey Rosa unfolds their stories largely separately.
