Dahris Martin, a young American, arrived in the holy city of Kairouan in the late 1920s. There she was privileged to witness traditional Tunisian domestic life from within. Her unique portrait of the city and people tells of bare-foot pilgrims and Bedouin, the deflowering of virgin brides, spirit possession, and dances held for djinn. The author was born in New York, studied at Columbia, and worked for Doubleday, before embarking for Tunisia. Originally published in 1937.
