Narrator Alix Dunmore's warm, lush voice escorts listeners through the dark streets and alleys of Istanbul as they enter 35-year-old Peri's life. Peri is headed to an elegant dinner party when a thief steals her purse. She fends off the attacker, and in the scuffle, a long forgotten photograph falls from her purse. Dunmore slips in and out of Peri's present and past. Her delivery of snarky comments is spot-on as Peri considers the posh guests and their inane conversations at the party. Even as she sits at dinner, the photo nags at her, taking her back to her Oxford days, three friends, and a betrayal. Dunmore's genteel, artful, and real performance brings Turkey's political and spiritual schisms front and center while shining a light on women's oppression. S.J.H.
