Informative & Enjoyable
I read this before and during a recent two-week visit to Turkey. The book gave me thoughtful historic and cultural context, woven around a neat story (the author's quest to uncover the true history, role, and origin of the fez in Turkey). The book's tone of matter-of-fact persistence, exasperation, and meandering & shared digestion of information stayed with me; I drew on them deliberately as I made my way from tourist to traveler.Was this review helpful?
