About this book
A wonderfully written, funny, entertaining and magical account of the author's struggle to restore a house and set up home in Morocco. A story of home-ownership abroad in the 'must visit' destination of Morocco.
Tells the story of Tahir Shah, a writer and film-maker in his 30s, married, with two children, who was beginning to wilt under British city life. Woven into the narrative is the author's own journey of self-discovery, of learning about a grandfather he hardly knew, and of coming to love the multi-faceted, contradictory country that is Morocco.
