Discover modern Turkey with Alev Scott
ALEV SCOTT tells us about her book TURKISH AWAKENING: A Personal Discovery of Modern Turkey.
Born in London to a Turkish mother and British father, Alev Scott moved to Istanbul to discover what it means to be Turkish in a country going through rapid change, a country with an extraordinary past and an ever more surprising present. Encompassing topics as varied as Aegean camel wrestling, transgender prostitution, politicised soap operas and riot tourism, this is a revelatory, at times humorous, at times moving, portrait of a country which is coming of age.
