M.A. Whitten

A home on Heybeliada. An American couple's impulsive decision to buy a house on one of Istanbul's Princes' Islands leads first to a series of encounters with architects, bureaucrats, workmen, and disapproving friends and family, but finally to a new life infused with the sense of joy and contentment known as "keyif".

This small island close to the heart of Istanbul emerges as a microcosm both of Turkey's deep traditions and of its rapid modernisation.
