Tara Alisbah, Author of "Turkish Hands"
Tara L. Alisbah was born in Ankara, Turkey in the year 1970. By the age of three she had lived in as many countries (Turkey, America, India) and become utterly confused by language and communication. As an adult she felt the need to combine her two halves (or three thirds or....) and took a year off from college to live in Turkey with relatives and begin her study of Turkish in earnest. Eventually, after much back and forth and work that didn't always fit a distinct trajectory, Tara found her niche as a Turkish culture specialist. This habit of not always taking the straight and obvious path is probably what allowed her to see the subtle layer of expressiveness Turks display in spite of their usual verbal indirectness.
