Peter Mayne

  • The Alleys of Marrakesh

    PETER MAYNE is an Englishman, now in his thirty-fifth year, who has been living in Morocco and who has taken up an antique life where time does not exist, in the alleys of Marrakesh. Because he wanted to write, he stopped trying to be a businessman. He was in Kashmir when the British moved out, and the Pakistanis, whom he had come to admire, invited him to serve them in their newly set up government. For two years he worked without stint in the Ministry of Refugees and Rehabilitation. Then, as the tension eased off, he decided that he would retire to another portion of the Muslim world and invite his thoughts. His adventures in what he calls “tiny, interior Marrakeshhave the unpretentious charm of a sentimental journey. They form the substance of a book which will be published in October and from which the Atlantic has drawn a three-part abridgment.
