“If one thought of Gueliz, the modern, Western part of the city, as a trimmed and
shaped topiary tree, such as one finds in the gardens of Versailles, the Boulevard
Mohammed Ginq was the trunk of the tree,” wrote Elizabeth Fernea in A Street in
Marrakech. “And at the end of the trunk lay the roots, the thousands of tiny, tendril'
shaped streets and alleys and sibhas and darbs that converged in some fashion
of natural growth rather than imposed design upon larger tendrils, which

Fernea, as was suggested before, writes in the third phase of American attitudes
toward the East. Since Wharton and she write directly of their visits to Morocco,
rather than through the mediation of fiction, their respective works, In Morocco (
1920) and A Street in Marrakech (1980) provide a sharp contrast between early
twentieth-century attitudes that were already quite traditional and more recent
attitudes. Traveling in Morocco long after it reached its independence in 1956,

Orleans. In Casablanca he meets the beautiful Claudette. Visit the Medina and
the intriguing Kasbah with Jeff, as he makes friends with the four hundred pound

... which is more polluting (although new cars must use unleaded fuel); and many
vehicles in Morocco, including private cars, run on diesel fuel, which is more
polluting than gasoline. All of this adds up to the fact that Moroccans who live in
cities are forced to breathe very low-quality air every day. Something in the air •
The earth versus the people. Heavy traffic on a street in Marrakech. Air pollution
has become an issue of increasing concern among Moroccans living in cities and

Snails are a street-stall staple, especially in Marrakech on Djemaa eI Fna square,
where a line of sturdy carts sells them by the broth-filled bowl. The flavorful broth
sipped at the end is said to be a restorative and digestive. But what's in it? One
respected attar (spice seller) in Marrakech gave me a list of more than fifteen
spices from thyme and licorice to lavender and tea leaves. “Which are the most
important?" I asked. “They all are," he said. “The balance has to be right." Here I
have ...

Not with the detached gaze of a mere observer but on the basis of her
thoroughgoing participation, Peets' stories expose the fabric, texture and tenor of
women's experience in Marrakech. Hers is a singular voice which speaks in
depth of Moroccan women not in the post-colonial present as does Elizabeth
Fernea in A Street in Marrakech (1975), but throughout a complex historical
period during which the political, social and economic enmeshing of Morocco
with Europe generated ...

Herthird and latest work, A Street in Marrakech, is the same type of work, a sort of
"ethnographic novel" based on the author's personal experiences and
observations, this time in the urban culture of a Moroccan city. In her highly
readable style, she unfolds the adventures and problems she and her family had
in learning about this culture. While her novelist's approach is sometimes
frustrating to an anthropologist because of what she leaves out, her book is
nonetheless fascinating in ...

He moved into his small, rather minimalist sitting room, thinking how much
Sophie would brighten up the room. Her charisma would vibrate from wall to wall,
making the rather severe surroundings positively glow. He walked into the
kitchen where he kept his car keys. On the walls were four large abstract
paintings, which he'd bought in a mad moment of inebriated daring from a street
artist in Marrakech. He gave a little shudder as he stared at them. They'd cost him
a small fortune to ...
