A Fez of the Heart, Travels Around Turkey in Search of a Hat
by Jeremy Seal
- TRAVEL NARRATIVE
- 337 PAGES
This engaging author didn't really focus his Turkish travels entirely on a felt hat! It's an excuse to comment on modern Turkey and the dramatic changes since the rise of Kemil Ataturk (who banned the Fez in 1925). The book deftly combines reporting, history, politics and the old-fashioned travelogue.
