Marbles – very interesting. There's an excellent non-fiction book about the history of it which is great drama. And I think in there I probably discouvered some of the illustrations from the Victorian period and earlier travels in Istanbul. And one thing led to another and they were just very captivating. There was something very appealing about it. Soon, I found myself creating a Turkish character and having him interact with this crazy English lady.
