Istanbul

October 31, 2009

According the the novel I’m presently reading, Istanbul is a bridge of sorts between two worlds. As such, it’s got one foot in Europe and one foot in the Middle East—or one foot in the “present” and one foot in the “past.”

Stupid orientalism.

    Sounds like it’s time to wash that novel right out of your hair.

    You’re not going to let us know what book this is?

    The Judas Strain, by James Rollins. I’m sort of embarrassed to admit that I read this sort of crap!
