New AUC Press Book about Women Travelers to Egypt (Cairo)

I saw this on facebook from the AUC Press and thought I'd share!

NOW OUT! Women Travelers in Egypt: From the Eighteenth to the Twenty-first Century edited by Deborah Manley (AUC Press, Protected content

This lively collection of writing by over forty women travelers includes excerpts also from Norma Lorimer who traveled on her own through North Africa and Egypt in Protected content .

"I have seen the afternoon market under the citadel where conjurors, snake-charmers, mountebanks, fortune-tellers, whistlers, actors and musicians are every day to be found working hard for their scanty livelihood, mixed up with old rags, old brass, old iron, old household utensils, and every kind of second-hand article imaginable. This 'afternoon market' is one of the most eastern things in Cairo, but it is far too humble and unsavoury for the ordinary tourist."
Norma Lorimer (Street Scenes, Protected content
