Hello all,

I am wondering if this book ( which sounds amazing ) can be purchased in Turkey especially here in Antalya. Does Antalya D & R carry this book title???? It sounds like the perfect book for me!!!!! I have lived in Turkey for 9 years now and have been married to a Turk for 16 years.
Thanks in advance.
Carrie

Yay, Carrie!! I'm glad they are ordering it for you!

Let us know what you think, hopefully I will have time to finish mine up in the next few days...I read about half the book in a couple of days and have never had time to keep going :(

Hi Carrie,
if all else fails, the online booksellers will deliver it to your door (ideefixe, estore, etc). the english just went into the third printing so don't be surprised if there is a little delay. but the Turkish is still in stock.

best,
jennifer

Phew! Anastasia and I leave for our U.S. Book Tour next week, so you won't hear from me for awhile, unless you're in US and in one of the cities we're visiting. :D

It'd be great to meet TTP people on the road. The tour will pass through NYC, Providence, DC, Dayton, Nashville, Ann Arbor, Tucson, LA, San Diego, San Francisco and Seattle among other cities.

Full listing of events: http://www.expatharem.com/events.htm

Hope to see some of you soon!

best,
Jennifer
