Editorial Reviews

Tom Brosnahan
What do you do with six kilos of unwanted yogurt, and two strange men who want you to pay them an outrageous three million Turkish liras for it? Kevin Revolinski knows, and does it, and lives to tell us all about it and his many other adventures in Turkey. Humorous, insightful, informative and sensitive, this fluently-written memoir gets deep into what makes Turkey the wonderful—if sometimes confusing and surprising—place that it is.
