it was amazing

Who wants Gauci to reproduce a cooking book based on her novels? I do.

Seriously, Gauci is an amazingly accomplished author who writes seriously accomplished novels. I have read and immensely enjoyed all of Gauci's works, and was equally impressed with The Carpet Weaver of Usak, her latest full length novel. Just like Gauci's other works, it effortlessly immerses the reader in a time and place with important lessons for our times.

The Carpet Weaver of Usak is a true page turner and kept me reading, even when the subject matter was dark and brutal. I love Gauci's use of the five senses – her descriptions of food always make me so, so hungry – her adroit, sensitive construction of character and place, her obvious love and knowledge of art, and the crafts, which have been important to civilizations since the beginning of time, and how I always escape into her works, and emerge satisfied and enriched by a wonderful storyteller.
