Example text

Others just stared at him. Summerfield saw beyond what could have been mistaken for hostility to a deep wariness, a mix of concentrated distrust and fear and, above all, pure curiosity. They continued for some moments to stare at each other and then, feeling mischievous, Summerfield sharply raised his arm whereupon several of the boys flinched—one actually turning heel and beginning to run—and then brought it to a rest at his nape where he calmly began to scratch an imaginary itch. He did it again and the effect was less dramatic.

The boy, shaven-headed and annoyingly insistent, thrust a terracotta bowl into Summerfield’s hands, sealing his fate. He paid and the boy disappeared as quickly as he had appeared and without giving any change. He shook his head, took a cigarette from his case, lit up and exhaled. To his left was the tall, imposing minaret of the Koutubia—the central mosque—with its chequered tiling. It brought back to him the five o’ clock wail of Morning Prayer that had woken him and Wilding in their sleep. His first reaction had been to swear, but as the long, nasal verses had echoed in the chilly dawn air, endlessly repeating the same hypnotic chant, it became soothing, haunting.

The pink city had turned red and the faint sound of the square and its preparations for the nocturnal bustle of the salt and sugar sellers reached him. He had come to understand this time of the day. The city would soon enter a little death, just under an hour between the end of the preparations for the night and the swaying mass of people that would fill the huge square. Summerfield closed his eyes, felt the cool, warm breeze lap against his skin and sucked in the smell of smoke and of spices.
