The Rug Bazaar

The Rug Bazaar features two American women travelers. Each discovers the pleasures and dangers of liaisons with Turkish men. "A duet of stories that flies in the face of anything you'd think a love story could be...Much of the beauty of The Rug Bazaar is to be found in the way one story complements another."--David James Poissant, judge of the Jeanne M. Leiby Chapbook Contest
