really liked it
Read in February, 2011

A fascinating memoir about growing up in a wealthy Ottoman family. World War I absolutely changed his whole world and the whole city of Istanbul. I think what stayed with me more than anything was that fact that everything could be change in an instant as well as the intimate glimpse of family life in a Turkish family.
