An author embarks on a journey to the land of his childhood dreams. Three weeks and thousands of kilometres in a small rust-bucket of a car has given birth to a humble, pleasurable, thoughtful, exciting and amusing travel journal.
Dan Tsalka, 1936-2005, a leading Israeli novelist, was also an enthusiastic traveller and his travel notes from India, Burma, Nantucket and St. Petersburg have been published in various magazines and newspapers.
"A refined little book, poetic, intelligent... and in an unintended way comic."
"A travel journal somewhere between Goethe and Delacroix... Tsalka is an author who writes like a poet and observes like a painter or a photographer, a tourist of refined taste... a European intellectual, a renaissance man..."
"A real gift... not just a traveller telling us of Morocco: Dan Tsalka gives us of his magic to create portions of his Moroccan life in our memory... a delightful book."
"Tsalka is indeed the most renaissance man we have. This time he has given us a beautiful diary from his travels. Parts of which could be turned into a book of poetry..."
