Book review: Inside Out In Istanbul: Making Sense of the City by Lisa Morrow

Updated 22 Jun 2020

Inside out IstanbulFor most people, Istanbul is synonymous with its world famous sights, the Haghia Sophia, the Blue Mosque and Dolmabahçe Palace. Few tourists manage to go beyond the beauty of the historical district of Sultanahmet to visit the other face of Istanbul. 

Yet a short ferry ride from the Bosphorus to the Sea of Marmara brings you to the shores of Asia, to an Istanbul that is vibrantly alive with the sounds of street vendors, wedding parties, dog walkers and more. 

The stories in Inside Out In Istanbul Making Sense of the City take the reader beyond the tourist façades deep into this sometimes chaotic, often schizophrenic but always charming city. 

Informative and entertaining, this collection of stories is a must-read for expats considering a move to Istanbul or elsewhere in Turkey.
