Press Reviews

  • Evening Standard
    The Istanbul atmosphere is as thick as Turkish coffee, and the novel is crammed with fascinating information
  • Independent
    `The delight of the Nadel book is the sense of being taken beneath the surface of an ancient city which most visitors see for a few days at most'
  • Sunday Telegraph
    `Particularly interesting for its discussion of Turkish customs and beliefs'
