About the author (2010)

Virginia Maxwell knows exactly why Istanbul has been called the city of the world's desire, as she desires nothing more than to return and sample its manifold delights again and again. With her partner Peter and young son Max, she has tramped its cobbled streets, explored its bazaars and marvelled at the friendliness and good humour of its locals. With good friends Jill, Kate, Catherine, Dave and Janet she's checked out bars, relaxed in cay bahcesis (tea gardens) and eaten trayloads of meze; and with sister Elizabeth she's hopped on and off ferries, eaten lokum (Turkish delight) and watched dervises whirl.
