"I am wrapping up my read of Sandy McCutcheon's - Through the Peacock Gate and I am so touched by the depth, the insight, the layers, the textures, the visceral, the intellect, the metaphysical and for the metaphor of the gate and metamorphosis. It so true to my experience of my Morocco and it joins the pantheon of great writers and their books in my ever growing library of Moroccan stories."
