Book DescriptionHeading east out of Istanbul, Ollivier takes readers step by step across Anatolia and Kurdistan, bound for Tehran. Along the way, we meet a colorful array of real-life characters Selim, the philosophical woodsman old Behcet, elated to practice English after years of self-study Krishna, manager of the Lora Pansiyon in Polonez, a village of Polish immigrants the hospitable Kurdish women of Dogutepe, and many more. We accompany Ollivier as he explores bazaars, mosques, and caravansaries-true vestiges of the Silk Road itself-and through these encounters and experiences, gains insight into the complex political and social issues facing modern-day Turkey.
