9781906533038: In Morocco

Having begun my book with the statement that Morocco still lacks a guide-book, I should have wished to take a first step toward remedying that deficiency.

About the Author:

Edith Wharton (1862-1937), American novelist and short-story writer, was born in New York City. Strongly influenced by Henry James, she is best known for her subtle and su-perbly crafted studies of the tragedies and ironies in the lives of members of middle-class and artistocratic New York soci-ety in the the nineteenth century. She was educated in New York and Europe, and married Edward Wharton, a Boston banker, in 1885. When her husband became mentally ill, she cared for him until 1913, when she settled permanently in France and divorced him. Among her best and most characteristic works are The House of Mirth (1905) and The Age of Innocence (1920), for which she received a Pultizer prize.

From AudioFile:

Armchair travelers and history buffs will delight in this recording. Wharton's language alternates between unimpassioned frankness and voluptuous description of Morocco's staggering natural and cultural beauty. Anna Fields takes her cue from the text, delivering a clipped and assured reading when Wharton discusses conveyance, history and other mundane matters, and an unhurried, even dreamy, reading of Wharton's sensuous and evocative descriptions. Those who have visited or lived in Morocco will feel immediately transported to familiar sites during these descriptive passages. The listening experience is made the more interesting because Wharton's account was written during one month of travel in the final year of WW I and first published eight decades ago. More recent travelers, who will discover much that is familiar here, are likely to enjoy the description more than the recitation of history. T.B. (c) AudioFile, Portland, Maine
