LOS ANGELES, March 1, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- When Angie Brenner and Joy Stocke met on a balcony of a guesthouse in a small resort town on the Mediterranean coast of Turkey, little did they know that they would be embarking on a 10-year journey through the complexities and contradictions of ancient Anatolia and modern-day Turkey.

Wild River Books, the publishing arm of the online literary magazine, Wild River Review, today will release Anatolian Days and Nights: A Love Affair with Turkey, Land of Dervishes, Goddesses, and Saints.  Stocke, the editor-in-chief of Wild River Review, and Brenner, the magazine's west coast editor, weave their stories about their interactions with colorful local people while fearlessly exploring Istanbul and Turkey's borders with Syria, Iran, Iraq, Armenia, Georgia, and Greece. The authors experience the rituals of the Turkish bath (21 st Century-style); find romance on the Bosporus; explore Istanbul's Grand Bazaar and meet a Sephardic Jewish Antiques dealer; search for the origins of Anat, the mother goddess; enjoy sumptuous Turkish cuisine; witness the Whirling Dervish ceremony in Konya, celebrating sufi mystic poet Jelalludin Rumi; and encounter Turkish soldiers at gunpoint on the Syrian border.

Anatolian Days and Nights is receiving praise from early reviewers.  "Compassionate, nuanced, tender and informative, this book will change your perspective on contemporary Turkey," says Elif Shafak, acclaimed Turkish author. 

Brenner and Stocke kick off a national book tour the first week of March on the West Coast, then shift to the East Coast in April, then move on to the Midwest in June.  Go to Anatolian Book Tour for updates .   Anatolian Days & Nights is available through bookstores via Ingram and Baker & Taylor, and Amazon and Barnes & Noble websites, as well as all major digital book formats.

The authors also are offering a Book Launch Tour of Istanbul and Cappadocia Turkey, May 19 through 29, 2012.  For more information and registration, go to Our Turkey Tour.
