  • Cinnamon City

  • STEP INTO THE DREAMLIKE CITY OF MARRAKECH

    Where passionate music, magic potions and the drama of Africa are cooled by the intuitive genius of Arabic culture.

    Miranda Innes and her partner were lured into buying a beautiful long-neglected riad in the heart of this pink-walled city. Only after they'd begun their restoration work did they find that nothing in this place of smoke and mirrors was quite what it seemed.

    In Cinnamon City Miranda Innes takes you beyond the tourist track, behind the bolted doors and deep inside the romance that is Marrakech. With lyrical and evocative descriptions of the swirling colours, flavours and aromas, this glorious book will open your eyes to this most exotic of North African cities.

Former garden editor of Country Living, and sister of Jocasta Innes, Miranda Innes lives in Spain with her husband, Dan Pearce, and an assortment of dogs and cats. Her first book, an account of the restoration of her house and garden in Andalucia, Getting to Manana, is published in paperback by Black Swan.
