Politics & Prose Bookstore Presents ORHAN PAMUK
At last available in English, the second novel by the
2006 Nobel winner takes place in 1980, as Turkey is on the cusp of momentous changes. While a military coup hovers, the widowed Fatma hosts her visiting grandchildren. The ancestral house is falling apart, and the dreams of the younger generation seem in no better shape: the frustrated historian drinks, the misfit schoolboy dreams of escape to America, and the politically minded, on both right and left, wonder what lies ahead.
