    1 thought on “Turkey Street: Jack and Liam move to Bodrum

    1. Thank you to Jack and Liam for taking me on my Turkish adventure. For my review, I offer some North American perspective.Us US Americans are notoriously badly traveled--I've been fortunate to travel some, but let's be honest the majority of us barely get to Canada or Mexico, let alone the Middle East. To most here, Turkey sounds like a distant kingdom of magic and mystery. Part thrilling, part terrifying! My limited experience in the Middle East was wonderful, so I was excited to read "Turkey St [...]

    2. I enjoyed reading Perking the Pansies, the first book by Jack Scott about the adventures of him and Liam in Turkey, but Turkey Street is even better.At the beginning of the book, it says “Jack likes to be educational as well as decorative,” and that is indeed true as the book works on many levels. It successfully weaves together information about Turkey in terms its culture, politics and history with a colourful description of the day to day life.It is full of the double entendre which Jack [...]

    3. TURKEY STREET, the sequel to Jack Scott’s PERKING THE PANSIES, is a satisfying hail and farewell to the unlikely country two gays fall in love with, passionately court, and reluctantly leave behind.Like the first book, this one is a tasty Turkish delight, a mad dervish of colorful characters, and a love song to an adopted country. The main difference I find in these pages is a more tangible undercurrent of sadness and the inevitability of kismet’s farewell kiss. The bitter-sweet texture is w [...]

    4. Turkey Street, by Jack Scott is at once a charming travel memoir and a smart, sassy commentary on how a small community of expatriates -- including a British gay couple -- get along each day in foreign lands such as Turkey, where the book takes place.Jack and Liam have gone to the tiny town of Bodrun along the Aegean and Mediterranean coasts on an extended holiday from the dank fogs of London. This is the story of the outrageous people they meet and the oftentimes funny, sometimes poignant, situ [...]

    5. I devoured Perking the Pansies by the same author and am delighted that this second book is every bit as good as the first. The further adventures of Jack and husband, Liam, follow this glorious couple in all their technicolour gayness through their (mis?)-spent time in Bodrum. Providing a fabulously irreverent peak into both local and expat community, as they sashay from the glitterati to poignantly painted down-on-their-luck characters, Scott peels back the layers of expat life and the sense o [...]

    6. I love Turkey, for all its flaws. I read Jack Scott's first book and it stood out from all the other books about Turkey. If anything this one is even better. Very funny and in places moving without going over the top. Many people struggle a bit leaving family behind, I thought the Liam story was very realistic and well written and I loved Beril. I hope there will be a third book.

    7. Funny, pacy and poignant. Another glimpse into the fascinating and fabulous (most of the time) Bodrum life of Jack and Liam. Who can fail to love this book, the sequel to the brilliant 'Perking the Pansies'?

    8. Turkey Street, Jack and Liam move to Bodrum by Jack Scott: reviews-and-ramblings.dreamwid 2015 Rainbow Awards Honorable Mention (5* from at least 1 judge)

    9. After meeting the crazy inhabitants of Bodrum town and reading through to the last poignant moments in Turkey Street by Jack Scott, it was really hard to come to the end of this tale and return to normal life. Scott’s portrayal of his life with partner Liam had me longing to sit in the garden with them, drinking wine and eating meze, swapping jokes and creating memories. Despite having come from the big city bustle of London, Jack and Liam easily adapt to the sunnier, slower shores of the Aege [...]
