Book Title: The Caliph's House: A Year in Casablanca

Author: Tahir Shah

Book Description:

I chose a work of fiction that reminded me of the importance and satisfaction of creating a home, whatever the obstacles may be. I never experienced the havoc the author endured, but I did have my share of difficulties finding reliable and skilled help when renovating a modest summer home on Lake Carey, Pa. Regardless of the challenges creating a special place, be it Pennsylvania or Casablanca, it has helped me achieve that needed balance between my professional and personal lives.
