Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Shuttling between Roman times and 1453, when Ottoman warlord Mehemet the Conqueror captured Constantinople, destroying the Byzantine Empire, this delightful travel memoir links episodes from Byzantine history to British-born poet Ash's impressions of the villages, mosques, palaces, shrines and ruins he visited across Anatolia. Ash, who lives in New York City, follows the path of the First Crusade, tours well-preserved medieval cities and explores exotic sites like the frescoed cave-monasteries of Cappadocia and Binbir Kilise (the Thousand and One Churches) rising from the Black Mountains' slopes. His lyrical mosaic conjures up forceful personalities: the Armenian-born usurper Romanos I (Theophylact the Unbearable), who was kidnapped and deposed by his two power-hungry sons in A.D. 944; Rumi, the 13th-century mystic and poet; and Beyazid I, a fratricidal murderer who committed suicide in 1403 rather than endure further humiliations as the prisoner of Mongol conqueror Timur.

Zom Zoms
Poet Ash has made his "amateur attempt" at walking through Byzantine history a pleasant experience. His scholarly travelogue fills the reader's mind with fascinating details about a civilization that lasted well over 1,000 years. Ash has done his homework well; everything from Byzantine rulers to the history of the area's architecture is covered. For students of history, Ash's finely tuned prose fills in the gaps in their knowledge of the subject.
