The Palace Lady`s Summerhouse

Patricia Daunt

From Istanbul`s palatial old embassies to its glorious Bosphorus summerhouses, from Ottoman Paris to Ankara`s Art Deco, from rainforest mansions to a mad mosque in the mountains… a diplomat`s wife reveals surprising secret histories. This book brings together essays by Patricia Daunt written for Cornucopia Magazine over the past twenty-five years. It concludes with her latest article, on the magnificent ruins of Aphrodisias, newly listed as a World Heritage Site, but long one of her greatest loves.

This volume is a rare treasure… flair and know-how dazzlingly combined with knowledge and wit. From it you will learn of a semi-secret Turkey. Patricia Daunt is not only a passionate Turcophile and a most impressive scholar; she is also a former ambassadress, who over many years has been able to penetrate far more deeply than most of us into the life and customs of what we must, alas, describe as a vanishing Turkey.
