This review is from: Tales from the Expat Harem: Foreign Women in Modern Turkey (Seal Women's Travel) (Paperback)
This is a much better book than the title suggests. It is a collection of true travellers tales of women who have found delight and surprises in their time in Turkey; it is informative, warm and often amusing. As someone who has spent many happy months in Turkey myself, I can identify with many of the little anecdotes and well narrated stories of a culture which we all hope will not become changed with mass tourism and the harsh influence of the capitalist west. I have a feeling that in time this book will be seen as a classic, as it is a unique record and most unusual. Well done to the publishers for taking a chance on it! If you have visited Turkey and love it, or if you are going to go there alone or have a daughter about to visit, you will find this book a real gem!
