Books about Turkey to add to your library

Looking for a good book about Turkey? Pamuk, Kinross, Kemal - the list goes on.Hi Everyone,

I hope you’ve been enjoying my posts and photos about my life in Istanbul and travels in Turkey. August was a really exciting month for me. I went to new places for a relaxing holiday, and gave three interviews and received a lovely book review by Marion James in Today’s Zaman. You can listen to my radio interview with Geraldine Doogue on ABC Radio National by clicking on the Interview tab above this post. Another interviews will come out in Autumn – in the Glenaeon Rudolph Steiner Alumnae magazine. The links to all book reviews received so far are to the right of this post. I’m sure that after reading them you’ll want to add my books about Turkey to your library!

They’ll make a great addition to your library on Turkey, or a useful present for a friend planning a trip here. Click on the links to buy Waiting for the Tulips to Bloom: Adrift in Istanbul, Inside Out In Istanbul: Making Sense of the City and Exploring Turkish Landscapes: Crossing Inner Boundaries.

Wherever you are, have a great summer!

About Goreme1990

I’m Lisa Morrow, the person behind I was born in Sydney, Australia and grew up a leafy middle class North Shore suburb. After finishing high school I went to Sydney University but failed to find my niche. After working as a public servant, cleaner, sales assistant, waitress, bar maid and car counter, I went overseas. Once there I hitchhiked through the UK, travelled in Europe and arrived in Turkey just as the Gulf War was starting. My three months stay in the small central Anatolian village of Göreme changed my life. On my return to Australia I earned a BA Honours Degree in Sociology from Macquarie University. An academic career beckoned but the call to travel was louder. After several false starts I moved to Turkey and lived there for ten years. In 2017 I moved to Lisbon, Portugal, but continue to travel regularly to Istanbul. In addition to my blog I've written a travel narrative memoir called "Waiting for the Tulips to Bloom: Adrift in Istanbul" and two collections of essays, "Inside Out In Istanbul: Making Sense of the City" and "Exploring Turkish Landscapes: Crossing Inner Boundaries". I have a regular segment on San Francisco Turkish radio and in early 2017 I released an audio walking tour called "Stepping back through Chalcedon: Kadikoy Walk", through VoiceMap. In addition I write for various international and Australian magazines and websites, as well as for this blog. A full list of my published articles, with links, can be found on the Writing on Turkey and Writing Beyond Turkey pages.
