Product description


"Extremely moving. Grissman captures life in remote Anatolia with stark honesty and compassion." - Paul Bowles"I was enthralled from the first pages until the end. Carla Grissmann describes her Turkish village with a perfect and genuine simplicity, a charming and natural frankness. I shed some tears when she left it." - Michel Deon of the Academie Francaise

About the Author

An American by birth, Carla Grissmann has spent most of her life outside the United States. She lived for many years in Morocco and has worked in France, Afghanistan, Sri Lanka and Pakistan. She currently lives in London and returns every year to Afghanistan where she works on behalf of the Kabul Museum. In 1970 she wrote Dinner of Herbs, a travelogue based on her remarkable experiences in remote Anatolia in the 1960s, when she spent the better part of a year living with a local peasant family. Dinner of Herbs was first published in 2001.
