 The Painted Bird is wonderful. I like Kosinski and his approach to the dark side of humanity.

The Bridge: A Journey Between Orient and Occident by Geert Mak
...
In 2006, Geert Mak spent weeks on the Galata bridge, one of Istanbul’s busiest, getting to know the pavement merchants: the tea vendor, the book salesman, the peddler of orthopedic soles and the boys who trade in illegal cigarettes.  Most of them are from villages in Turkey’s far east and are desperately poor, barely able to their keep their heads above water; they live from one day, one hour, to the next.

I can give a proper evaluation then.
