I just returned from a trip to a place that I can't seem to let go of, and ALL THINGS TURKEY are calling to me.

Krishnan knows his world, and shares it. Providing the reader with just enough historical reference, he winds his stories around corners and through time, allowing for both knowledge and introspection.
