Book Description
From the acclaimed author of My Name Is Red ("a sumptuous thriller"-John Uplike; "chockfull of sublimity and sin" New York Times book Review), comes a spellbinding tale of disparate yearnings for love, art, power and god set in a remote Turkish town, where stirrings of political Islamism threaten to unravel the secular order. following years of lonely political exile in western Europe, Ka, a middle-aged poet, returns to Istanbul to attend his mother`s funeral. Only partly recognizing this place of his cultured, middle-class youth, he is even more disoriented by news of strange events in the wider country; a wave of suicides among girls forbidden to wear their head of suicides among girls forbidden to wear their head scarves at school. An apparent thaw of his writer`s curiosity a frozen sea these many years leads him to Kars, a far-off town near the Russian border and the epicenter of the suicides.
