This is a reflexive account of an American woman and her family's unpredictable journey through the private and public worlds of a traditional Muslim city in the process of change. As a Western stranger in Marrakech, Fernea was met with suspicion and hostility. The story of the slow growth of trust and acceptance between the author and her Moroccan neighbors involves the reader in everyday activities, weddings, funerals, and women's rituals. Both the author and her friends are changed by the encounters that she describes. A Street in Marrakech is a crosscultural adventure, ethnographically sound, and written in an accessible style.

Review:

"All of Fernea's books enter the unknown and private world of veiled women, devout Muslims, and Middle Eastern households. From hostility to trust, she shows lives most Westerners will never see." --Martha C. Ward, University of New Orleans
