Review

Elias Canetti talks of blue people in his wonderful "The Voices of Marrakesh".

"The young lad aproached us and asked for a coin. His face was dark blue in colour, as was his robe; he was a drover and, to judge from his appearance, one of the so-called 'blue men' who live to the south of the Atlas. The dye in their clothing, we have been told, comes off on their skin, making them all, men and women, blue the only blue race."
