Very like 'A Year in Provence' except that this venture (by a Brit/Afghan family) takes place in far more exotic and possibly dangerous Casablanca in Morocco. Still, great humor told absolutely dead-pan, as the author deals with an untrustworthy architect, workmen who destroy more than they build, superstitious locals, a raft of stubborn servants, and of course, the djinns - those mysterious, wicked spirits who occupy the house and just may be trying to get rid of the new owner.
