Product description

Review

An unusually convincing autobiographical sketch. The entire portrait is good. -- Peter Quennell, The Daily Mail

The thing that stands out most, in retrospect, is the author's honesty. -- Sue Earle, The Sunday Morning Post

This book is a masterpiece -- Robert Fox, The Daily Telegraph

an unusual insight into the lives of the much-tried generation which founded modern Turkey -- Andrew Mango, Times Literary Supplement

it gives a rare insight into the psychological transformation which has come over the unchanging East... A wholly delightful book -- Harold Nicolson, The Observer

About the Author

Irfan Orga was born into a rich Ottoman family which was decimated, financially and emotionally, by the First World War. He joined the Turkish Air Force but was forced into exile by a law forbidding members of the armed forces to marry foreigners. Living in England with his Anglo-Irish wife and their son Ates, he was largely supported by his wife, though the publication of Portrait of a Turkish Family and The Caravan Moves On made him a literary celebrity in the 1950s.
