Book Description

Aside from the work of a few Turkish writers who have become well known in the West, very little Turkish literature has been translated into English. Volume One of this two-volume anthology, the largest compilation to date of contemporary Turkish short stories in English translation, aims to fill this gap and introduce an international audience to the depth and range of recent Turkish short fiction. Volume One includes 43 stories by 32 writers, with an introduction by Turkish writer and critic Feridun Andac. Varying widely in style and subject, these works represent both established and up-and-coming Turkish writers, roughly half of whom are women. The stories illuminate the complex landscape of contemporary Turkish society while at the same time addressing universal themes such as love and belonging, alienation and identity.
