"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
