December Book Club choice : Miranda Innes' Cinnamon City is a bittersweet book exploring her struggle to pursue her dream of running a guest house in Morocco. The Club's first non-fiction title follows Miranda's immersion in a magical but unknowable Islamic culture. For months, writer Miranda Innes had been occupied in restoring a beautiful, but long-neglected, old house in the heart of the ancient medina in the pink-walled Moroccan city of Marrakech. Her dream was to run it as a guest house. With renovations almost complete, she invited her extended family to stay for Christmas.

Books by Miranda Innes. I loved Cinnamon City, but I was also recently inspired by a copy of Rags to Rainbows which might be one of the candles and cushions era! I loved some of the designs so much that I have used patchwork from the book to make new covers for my camper van cushions. uk at the blog entry with pics to see (they are not yet in situ).

Lyrical and evocative, this is a travel book masquerading as the story of the author’s purchase of a very dilapidated property in Marrakech and her attempts to renovate it. Included is the family Christmas from hell in a house with few modern conveniences, and her love affair with all things Moroccan.From the Hardcover edition.

Too much "me" and too little Marrakech. This is out of date. It's a promo for her B&B. Disappointing.

Entertaining travel story.

Miranda Innes' memoir of her renovation in Marrakech is an enjoyable romp through the souks (markets) and streets of Marrakesh. Occasionally I tired of the ceaselessly repetitive tea stops, but if you want an exotic trip, historical commentary and vivid descriptions of clothing, fabrics, details of Muslim decoration and life, this is the book for you. We wonder at times why Innes is putting herself through the pain of redecorating, restructuring this house long distance and the foibles of dealing with a variety of builders, artisans and artists, some of questionable character and ability. But her general good humor throughout saves the book, and the day, in this adventure into one of the world's most complicated societies. Talking with people who have lived with Moroccan families reveals that Innes is definitely an outsider in the Muslim world,a fact which she readily admits,but she points out continuous subtleties of the culture that make Cinnamon City an interesting weave. The magic she records comes from the people of Marrakesh; the book is Extreme Home Makeover meeting the third world.
