Hideous Kinky

Hideous Kinky


Quirky, charming and suffused the footloose spirit of the Sixties, this is the unforgettable story of an English woman who decides on a whim to move herself and her two young daughters to Morocco. The ensuing adventure takes them through richly perfumed markets, dilapidated hotels and mystical Sufi retreats, via friendships and feuds, romances with nomadic street performers, hitch-hiking and nights camping by the coast - all seen through the eyes of a precocious five-year-old girl. An irresistible and transporting modern classic about the path to self-discovery and the spirit of freedom, filled with the sights, smells and textures of twentieth century Morocco.
