Turkey Street builds on the foundations of Perking the Pansies beautifully as Jack and Liam start a new chapter of Turkish life in Bodrum. The humour remains, the observation of the expat community in Turkey is continually revealing and there are some thought-provoking moments amongst the life of wine, laughs and VOMITS that hit hard. A great read, perfect for your holiday, and a must for anyone contemplating a permanent move to sunnier European climes and a new culture. Enjoy.
Jack has a cutting wit that makes you titter and suck your breath in between your teeth in how-are-you-getting-away-with-that style. It runs through his writing… and also flows from his mouth as he quips back at some the characters in the story.
