UK's Topselling Newspaper Loves EH!
The UK's largest newspaper, the Daily Telegraph (with an average daily circulation of 901,000), raves about Expat Harem in a review by Jo Parfitt: "This is not just another anthology by expat wives who long to get in print. This is a wonderful book; beautifully written, thought-provoking and inspiring. Every essay is spot on, literary and insightful. Grouped into sections, they cover everything from relationships with Turks and non-Turks to the food, the music, the humour and the passion. Be ready to book a flight to Istanbul afterwards."
