Marrakesh: Through Writer's Eyes

by Edited by Barnaby Rogerson and Stephen Lavington
£12.99   paperback  Eland Publishing Ltd (2006)

Marrakesh: Through Writer There has never been a more fashionable nor a more instantly exotic destination than Marrakesh.
 
It is a dream landscape, with the steel-blue backdrop of the High Atlas mountains, a hint of the desert, vast, weathered, red earth ramparts, tall tapering palms, orchards of oranges and verdant olives. In the evening, life concentrates on that disordered square of marvels - the Djemma el Fna - where storytellers, fortune-tellers and acrobats weave their nightly magic - and the packed, festive alleys of the soul. Marrakesh is modern time-travel, transporting you to a mysterious medieval present.
 
This book explores the city's mystique through the researches, speculations and scholarship of forty travel writers who have succumbed to the enchantment of the city.
 
Contributors include: Elia Canetti, Peter Mayne, Juan Goytisolo, Esther Freud, Edith Wharton, Wyndham Lewis, Gavin Maxwell, George Orwell, Walter Harris and Leo Africanus.
