T.R. Lawrence’s enthralling book on shopping the Marrakesh, Morocco souk took me back 20 years. …He surfed the souk and was able to resurrect in words the sounds, excitement, smells, mystery and magic of the famed Marrakesh souk adjacent to the three-ring- circus Jemma-el-Fna square… It is a great read. — Landt Dennis, Author of LIVING IN MOROCCO: Design from Casablanca to Marrakesh.
This engaging read describes the partly fictionalized Moroccan adventures of T.R. Lawrence, co-owner with his wife, Linda… Amusing flashbacks focus on the mythical Pink City before its “discovery” by the international jet set. — Kitty Morse, author of Cooking at the Kasbah: Recipes from my Moroccan Kitchen and Mint Tea and Minarets: a banquet of Moroccan memories.
“Lawrence of Marrakesh” is the story of TR Lawrence’s passion for Moroccan textiles and the many adventures to which that passion leads. Set against the sights, the sounds, and the smells of Marrakesh, in all their beauty and rawness, it ranges from the manicured gardens of the luxurious Mamounia Hotel to the dark, narrow alleyways of old town. And of course, there are the busy souks. It is a fascinating story, well told. As you will learn, no one visits the markets of Marrakesh without a guide. Let Lawrence be yours.” —D R Baker, Author of “The Devil’s Money”
