The Storyteller of Marrakesh

The Storyteller of Marrakesh - Joydeep Roy-Bhattacharya I have not yet visited the Jemaa el Fna of Marrakesh...and after reading this book I am almost afraid to, for fear it will not live up to the magical mystical descriptions of the place..
This is a story of a disappearance, but it is much more than that, with multi layered strands and musings on the nature of truth and beauty..
At the end I was so mesmerised by the layers of storytelling that I was not sure I had got to the truth of the matter..but I didn't care...I had enjoyed the experience..
