Reviews

This gem of a history book is slim enough to squeeze into the smallest piece of carry-on luggage but contains a wealth of stories about Istanbul's famous Galata bridge...Weaving the long history of the bridge with those who populate it today, the sensitive Mak shines a light on contemporary Turkey and its changing relationship with the rest of Europe * Sunday Telegraph *
Geert Mak introduces us to the city's denizen and history, stressing the symbolic importance of the bridge to a nation that sees itself as the meeting place between Europe and Asia * London Review of Books *
Geert Mak's thoughtful travelogue sketches out Istanbul's past, and provides a touching portrait of its present inhabitants... his thoughtful, beautifully written book is suffused with respect for the richness of the individual life * Independent *
Stories from the heart of a travelogue written with sympathy and acute observation * Financial Times *
Part history lesson, part cultural essay, The Bridge's slender size does not diminish it's riches -- Viola Fort * Guardian *
