The Carpet Weaver of Usak by Kathryn Gauci

I was fascinated from the first chapter. The author has an extensive knowledge of carpet making, its history and craft and used this to weave a story set in Turkey around the first World War and the years that followed. Some of the events were famili ...more

I did enjoy this book. The author's self effacing romp through the uncertain world of acting is a treat. From local amateur dramatics to university, bit parts on Coronation Street and uncounted numbers of anonymous appearances in an ill-conceived act ...more

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I loved the author's ability to gently roll the reader through his story of moving from England to Ireland. I could see so much of his new farm and the surrounding countryside through his descriptions and fell in love ...more

"A delight! An exciting new voice in the travel memoir genre.

I really enjoyed reading this richly descriptive travel journal and found the information fascinating. Having never visited Paris, I feel I've learned a lot. Lovely, gentle reading.

I found this memoir challenging. I thought that the author I knew from some doubtful and altogether unsanitary adventures in India would slide into mediocrity when writing about his marriage and domestic arrangements back in England. I was not prepar ...more

Writing about a country and people you can't name might sound a difficult way to write a memoir, but I thought it actually heightened my interest in the book. I was strangely drawn to and also repelled by the situations the author found herself drawn ...more
