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.
"Romantic couple buys stunning ruin in the sun ...This latest example has all the right ingredients"
"Beautifully and evocatively written, Innes takes the reader behind the bolted wooden doors and deep into the romance of Morocco"
"Love story, cautionary tale and travelogue in one, it's a gem."
"In a black farce laced with high-octane depiction of life in 21st-century Marrakech, the author braves every conceivable hassle from penury to forcibly acquiring servants. This is a book that is as penetrating as it is funny."
"Her account is amusing and her evocative descriptions of the sights, smells and sounds of the place truly delicious."
