    Kessler has an extraordinary voice and depth of knowledge, drawing the reader into the underworld of Istanbul, with all its complexities and intricacies. He is clearly a talented wordsmith as well as an expert historian. The meticulously crafted descriptions are written with such passion and graphic detail that leave very vivid imprints on one's mind about the setting and characters that you feel obliged to sympathize with. There were many times in the novel when I felt compelled to re-read, annotate and highlight precious philosophical nuggets or lessons in linguistics, history and cultural immersion. An artful piece of literature, I look forward to reading more of his work!

    I was lucky enough to read "These Lions Have Wings" a few years ago, and it was an incredible read. Not only does the novel paint a detailed portrait of Istanbul, it provides an in-depth and emotional depiction of some unique characters and human experiences. It grabbed my attention from the very start -- definitely worth your time!
