Description

Evliya Celebi was the Orhan Pamuk of the 17th century, the Pepys of the Ottoman world - a diligent, adventurous and honest recorder with a puckish wit and humour.

He is in the pantheon of the great travel-writers of the world, though virtually unknown to western readers.

This translation brings his sparkling work to life.

Brilliant selection of the writings of the most engaging and widely-travelled Ottoman of all. Hair-raising escapades, anecdotes and social observations.
