"Readers of Jack Scott's début book, Perking the Pansies, would be forgiven for wondering what happened to our intrepid hero Jack and his husband Liam next - given the challenges inherent in moving to a country that's officially secular but actually over 90% Muslim. This follow-up, Turkey Street, ends the wondering. And it does it in fine style." Dave reviews the sequel to Jack Scott's memoir of life as half of a gay expat couple in Turkey.
"I studied the steady stream of strollers; all ages and all types gently ambled by. As I watched, I wondered if there was such a thing as a typical Turkish type, akin to an English rose, Celtic redhead or blond Swede. What hit me was the rich diversity of Turks, a veritable United Nations of a people, from ginger to dusky, European to oriental." Jack Scott muses on the racial mélange of modern Turkey - and the rest of the world.
