TALES FROM THE EXPAT HAREM is an expatriate anthology by foreign women in modern Turkey. It has been a #1 English best-seller in Turkey where it was released in Sept 05, and called “enlightening” by former New York Times Istanbul bureau chief Stephen Kinzer, “riveting” by world explorer Tim Severin, “thought-provoking” by University of Arizona Near Eastern Studies professor Elif Shafak, “addictive” by CNN and TIME correspondent Andrew Finkel, “insightful” by Lonely Planet founder Tony Wheeler, and “impressive and important for the country” by Turkish Foreign Minister Abdullah Gul.
The American editors will conduct a 6-week, 20 city Expat Harem Spring 2006 Book Tour in support of the North American edition of the book (Seal Press, March 2006).
