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.

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