Trading in Memories: Travels Through A Scavenger's Favorite Places by Barbara Hodgson. A marvelous little book of markets and shops, dusty caravans and sunlit squares. For those of us who have long delighted in Barbara's illustrated novels - The Tattooed Map, The Sensualist, Hippolyte's Island, The Lives of Shadows and her non-fiction works of women explorers and travelers to the exotic lands - this is the perfect companion volume. Where to find all the treasures and wonders of Egypt, Morocco, Turkey and more. Told in Barbara's inimitable style that makes you feel you're standing next to her, under the palm trees with a desert breeze ruffling your hair. Whether you're an armchair traveler or spend half your time (and all your money) visiting foreign climes, this book is for all of us that enjoy the thrill of the hunt, searching for and finding the ultimate piece of ephemera.
