Praise for Vignettes & Postcards from Morocco:

“The stories in this mesmerizing collection will make you ache to travel throughout Morocco, and will sustain you until your next, or first, visit.”

—Larry Habegger, executive editor, Travelers’ Tales Books

“Whether it’s Jeff Greenwald’s encounter with the kif-smoking Paul Bowles in Tangier, or Rolf Potts wandering a city he arrived in only by mistake, or Christina Ammon’s quest for contraband Cabernet – or even the recipe you’ll find for camel burger (don’t forget the chopped mint)—the contents of this book are sure to stoke your wanderlust.”

—Jim Benning, co-founder of World Hum

“Some of my favorite writers create an evocative picture of a wonderfully diverse country. It’s not about where to go; it’s about how to think about it when you do. This a recommended read, unless you’re going there in the near future, it which case it is mandatory.”

—Tim Cahill, author of Jaguars Ripped My Flesh and Hold the Enlightenment
