Über diesen Titel

Inhaltsangabe:

Morocco! Out of the Orient, into Africa... Vignettes of Life and Adventure... A War Correspondent’s Story... Casablanca Notebook is a lively collection of tales about the adventures and misadventures of Americans, Europeans and Moroccans in that storied city and country. In some vignettes the capers of local characters are imbued with rascality; in others one observes the sometimes hilarious, sometimes heart-rending adventures of Americans abroad. The longest tale tells of the author's experience as the only female correspondent covering the War in the Sahara. Confronted by centuries of anti-feminist tradition, she summoned up bare-faced bravura and wily tricks of diplomacy to get her dispatches out. Twenty-three original line drawings by the author depict Moroccan subjects from camels to casbahs!

About the Author:

Descended from New England sea captains, Louise Sheldon inherits the traits of a rover, which coupled with fluency in foreign languages became a springboard to a career as a foreign correspondent. At LIFE magazine for twelve years, Louise covered the United Nations in New York as a reporter and writer, then went on to Paris, Bonn and London. After three years as an Associate Editor of Smithsonian, she moved to Morocco with her husband, Robert E. MacDonald, a member of the diplomatic corps. From Rabat she corresponded for United Press International (Paris), The Christian Science Monitor (Boston), The Middle East and 8 Days (both London magazines) and The International Herald Tribune (Paris). The only American and the only woman reporting from Morocco, she covered the Saharan War, influencing the U.S. Congress to support this former ally. She continues to write on the arts and travel from numerous foreign countries, such as China, India, Peru, Lithuania and Slovakia. Louise Sheldon graduated from Bryn Mawr College with a B.A. major in German and a minor in Spanish. Later she received an M.A. in French Literature from Northridge University.
