Maggie Scratch

How did a young rebel from the Jewish neighbourhoods in Philadelphia find her home in the Valley of the Son of Moses in Ibiza? In 1980, nearly 32 years old, Maggie Scratch writes a column for The Ibiza News, recounting current events while reminiscing about her past adventures. In the sixties and seventies, she travelled from Philadelphia and the University of Boston to the California forests and a palapa in the Mexican desert before arriving in Ibiza at the height of its splendour. It might seem as if she is a man-eater, but
Maggie really wants to get pregnant, thinking she might have to break it off with Izzy, the charismatic painter she lives with, because he has had a vasectomy. Maggie hears her grandmother telling her “some paths just have be the way they are.”
