“I'm more than halfway through and thoroughly enjoying it. The authors write alternate chapters in a very personal way, each with her own style and focus. The romantic misadventures of "Angie" form a goodly portion of her chapters, yet the entire book...”
y the poetry of thirteenth-century mystic Jelaluddin Rumi, Brenner and Stocke journey to central Turkey for the Whirling Dervishes Festival. A visit to a Turkish bath becomes a lesson in sensuality and patience. Their interest in the cults of the mother goddess takes them to Ephesus, the Black Sea, and east into Mesopotamia. Through intuition, experience, and a bit of serendipity, Brenner and Stocke find excitement, friendship, and love, and learn how and why Turkey--a country that holds the keys to Western Civilization--continues to grow in world importance.Travel writing with literary value, Anatolian Days and Nights will appeal to armchair travelers as well as those about to hit the road.
