Exploring the Expat Harem

I recently received my first comment on my blog “Accidental Writer” from Anastasia Ashman who edited the book “Tales from the Expat Harem”. She led me to the website Expat+HAREM, which describes itself as “the global niche”. Well, just the name was intriguing enough to delve into further. I spent an hour exploring and reading the blogs posted by women from various countries and with varied backgrounds and experiences.

It is a creative hub for female writers with cross-cultural experiences to share. Its contributors have some fresh perspectives on what it means to be an expat/traveler/immigrant. The female writers come from all over the world. The site is described as a “Multi-author blog of cultural entertainment inspired by expatriate literature collection Tales from the Expat Harem”. Wow. The book is an anthology of stories about the female expat experience in Turkey, edited by Anastasia M. Ashman and Jennifer Eaton Gökmen. I’m going to have to buy it.
