Fiction • 6 hrs. • Abridged • © 2004

An aura of ARABIAN NIGHTS prevails as tale after tale unfolds, varying in theme and tone but always riveting. Greeks, Turks, Armenians--Muslims and Christians--live peaceably together in Eskibahce, a small coastal town in Anatolia, until war and tragedy intervene. Detailed historical information combines with insightful dialogue on themes both lyrical and dramatic. Always captivating, this is two books in one, and both the history and the stories resonate with timeless human insights and behaviors. Hugh Bonneville's rich voice and exquisite diction bring to life this account of a mix of people filled with all of the surprises of human nature, who, having once lived harmoniously, suddenly find they have become violent enemies.
