I bought this book because I lived in Tangier for eight years in the 1980s. Tessa Codrington's beautifully presented book is an assemblage of photographs (hers, mostly) of some of the expatriates (and a few distinguished Moroccans) who live or have lived in Tangier from the early 20th century to this day. Tessa Codrington's own association with Tangier dates back to the 1950s, so she is well-placed to provide this portrait of the city.

One day, a chance encounter with a Portuguese woman inspires him to question his life-and leads him to an extraordinary book that will open the possibility of changing it. Inspired by the words of Amadeu de Prado, a doctor whose intelligence and magnetism left a mark on everyone.

One day, a chance encounter with a Portuguese woman inspires him to question his life-and leads him to an extraordinary book that will open the possibility of changing it. Inspired by the words of Amadeu de Prado, a doctor whose intelligence and magnetism left a mark on everyone who met him and whose principles led him into a confrontation with Salazar’s dictatorship, Gergorius boards a train to Lisbon. As Gregorius becomes fascinated with unlocking the mystery of who Prado was, an extraordinary tale unfolds.

The stunning photographs and evocative text in this volume capture the essence of Tangier life from the 1920s to the present day. Paul and Jane Bowles, the American painter Marguerite McBay, Woolworth heiress Barbara Hutton, playwright Tennessee Williams, royal photographer Cecil Beaton, and the painters Claudio Bravo and Patrick Procktor are some of the legendary residents of this Moroccan port city portrayed in these reminiscences and candid portraits. Personal family photographs depict the extravagant parties hosted and attended by the author and her circle. The evolution of design and style in some of the great houses as they changed ownership is documented, demonstrating how the composition of life in this archetypal city unfolded throughout the 20th century.

I bought this book because I lived in Tangier for eight years in the 1980s.

Tessa Codrington's beautifully presented book is an assemblage of photographs (hers, mostly) of some of the expatriates (and a few distinguished Moroccans) who live or have lived in Tangier from the early 20th century to this day. Tessa Codrington's own association with Tangier dates back to the 1950s, so she is well-placed to provide this portrait of the city.

The material in the book captures the extraordinary lives led in this once fashionable, but always distinctly eccentric, expatriate watering hole. It is essentially a coffee table book with limited text (brief background and anecdotes) but is a delight to the eye. Tessa Codrington is an excellent photographer with a long distinguished career in this field.

I was very pleased to see a number of people represented who I personally met and some of whom I knew well - Paul Bowles, the Hon. David Herbert, Anna McKew, Richard Timewell, Joe McPhilips III, Patrick Thursfield, George Greaves, Stephanie Sweet, Michael Scott, Mary Evans, and Patricia Erzini amongst them.

Of course, it is easy to think of people left out, but the criteria (and it is perhaps the only weakness of the book for me) is that unless Tessa Coddrington took a photo of the person they are not included. The following long term expats spring to mind: Paul Danquah, Peter Pollock, Anne Harbach, James Lee, Richard Netherlin, Nigel Logan, Philip Ramey, Marie Cicely, Guy and and Dotty Kent, Jim Luneburg, Louise Beatty, Brigadier Hector Speer, Jean Michael Grey-Theriot, Patricia Haskins, Muriel Mitchell-Henry, the Taylors, Tim Hunloke, and Tony Williams. They would have made colourful additions to this book.

It is fair to say, however, that thisSpirits of Tangier is Tessa Coddrington's own reminiscence and her collection of friends, so unless you lived there yourself and are looking for references to particular old friends (I was) these lacunae do not diminish the book in the slightest.

It is a welcome addition to the small number of books on Tangier's very colourful few decades as an expatriate colony. The photography is superb and it evokes in me very many happy memories of my years there.Spirits of Tangier
