Re-discover the late 1960’s

Letters from Turkey captures the life and trials of a young, idealistic Peace Corps Volunteer who finds himself in what his supervisors have described as “one of the toughest assignments in Turkey.” The reader will meet Turks of many types in this memoir, from the diabolical Müdür Bey to the kind and thoughtful Doğan. The reader will also be transported back in time as significant world events of the period 1967 to 1969 are chronicled in detail. The author’s attention to descriptive nuances and depth of honesty and humor are significant attractions for anyone wanting to read a book that honors the sacrifices and the dedication of Peace Corps Volunteers everywhere.
