Smouldering Incense, Hammered Brass

Heather Burles describes her ­experiences ­travelling in the countryside, ­renting a small house in Damascus, learning to speak Arabic, meeting ­people, and avoiding trouble. As a woman travelling alone, she has access to women’s lives and is often invited into their homes. Smouldering Incense, Hammered Brass is written with clarity and grace.
