This is the story of what happened there.Matt figured adjusting to life in Turkey would entail some challenges, and he certainly wasnt disappointed.

He survived bomb attacks, lost his cool around beggar kids, drove a jewelry business into the ground, and got into fistfights over parking. Along the way though, he saw beauty in ruins older than the Roman Empire, was wowed by tales of Bulgarian freedom fighters, tried not to hit cows in the road, and drank plenty of peach-flavored Lipton iced tea.A Tight Wide-open Space is the story of falling in love not only with a woman, but with a city and a country.Turkeys English-language daily newspaper Todays Zaman calls the book an immensely readable and pleasing account of five years in Turkey.Adventures in Expat Land says the book stays with you, lingering in your subconscious.

Its akin to overhearing someone half-singing, half-whispering a dreamy, jazzy ballad to their beloved.
