Farewell: A Mansion in Occupied Istanbul

Turkish Literature Series
Ay_e Kulin
Translated by Kenneth J. Dakan

A sweeping story of the final collapse of the Ottoman Empire in the wake of the First World War, Farewell is a novel of great warmth, suffused with tragedy. Focusing on the experiences of one particular family living in one particular house during these historic events, Ayşe Kulin mixes fact and fiction, soap opera and Tolstoy, to bring to light the effects of such political upheaval on a nominally comfortable and affluent household: the monied and intellectual class who find that their stake in Turkish life and culture is far more precarious than they could have guessed.
