We're kicking off the first book club of the year with a journey to Morocco.

Inspired by the Moroccan vacations of his childhood, Tahir Shah decides to buy a house in Casablanca and moves his family there from England in hopes of breaking out the monotony of life in London and exposing his children to a more carefree childhood.

Matt randomly picked this up in a bookstore and couldn't put it down.

It's beautifully written and endlessly enthralling. Shah is a masterful writer and storyteller, and you'll be glued to his every word. While dealing with corruption, the local bureaucracy, thieves, gangsters, jinns causing havoc, and the hassle that seems to come with even the most simple interactions, Shah weaves a story that is simply one of the best Matt's ever read.

You can purchase a copy if you haven't read it yet on Bookshop or Amazon.

Tahir Shah is a prolific best-selling author and film-maker. His thirty-year career has produced more than forty highly acclaimed works of fiction and non-fiction, as well as numerous documentaries and screenplays, and a massive body of journalism, scholarly articles, and photography. Styling himself as an ‘Enthusiast and Adventurer’ Tahir has spent his professional life searching for the hidden underbelly of lands through which he travels. With a world-wide following, Tahir’s work has been translated into more than thirty languages, in hundreds of editions. His documentaries have been screened on National Geographic TV, The History Channel, Channel 4, and in cinemas the world over.
