  • This is a wonderful book by a wonderful writer

    Robert Macfarlane
  • Meander is both the tale of a quixotic journey down a river and a wonderfully affectionate, funny, intimate and knowledgeable portrait of Turkey

    Barnaby Rogerson, Times Literary Supplement
  • There are few better travel writers than Jeremy Seal writing today, and none better on Turkey

    Geographical Magazine
  • Success and enjoyment in this book spring from the fact that Seal is equally at home in the past as the present... his great ability here is to convey something of the lives, the concerns and the nature of the people of the region

    Anthony Sattin, Spectator
  • Meander takes us to a forgotten river and a land whose history and culture, significant as they are for bridging East and West, old and new, are all but neglected. It's wonderful stuff... a book that celebrates the dilemma in which Turkey finds itself, which records with sensitivity a story which is both epic and intensely personal... this is a fine observation of a landscape and its people and of a country whose efforts to define itself have been as circuitous as the river itself'
