The State of The Real in istanbul, by my friend Damian Sutton

It's not every day that you spot a book by a close friend of yours in a bookshop, within a different country. So here I am in this amazing shop in the Beyoglu district of Istanbul and out pops Damian's excellent book. It was also the first time that I have seen the copy. As one progresses in this world, it becomes clear that it is less likely to receive free copies of books written/edited by close friends. There are obvious reasons for this. Congratulations Damian!!!
