Hamilton's next book will be a cultural history of Tangier, something not done before.
Tangier is perennially fascinating and experiencing a major renaissance.
It's a popular travel destination once again and people are interested in the city's extraordinarily rich history - from ancient beginnings suffused with myth and legend, through years of invasion and conquest, on to its becoming a focus of European rivalry and hotbed of espionage and intrigue; the Golden Age in 50s, 60s and 70s, subsequent decline and recent regeneration.
The book will be woven with traveller's anecdotes, extracts of inspired poetry and prose and populated with a brilliant cast of characters: pirates, sultans, artists, musicians, writers, princes and playboys.
