Betty Asma (everydayabook) | 3612 comments A good choice about Turkey. Many realistic details of setting and surroundings. Includes Selçuk Altun himself ("bibliomaniac", "unattractive") as a character.
"The banker Selçuk Altun, the son of a retired governor who was my father's childhood friend, was allowed to go in and out of his room whenever he wished."
