Publikace: The Bastard of Istanbul - Shafak, E.. Longlisted for the 2008 Orange Fiction Prize, Elif Shafak's The

Bastard of Istanbul is a tale of an extraordinary family curse and

clashing cultural identities in the mystical and mysterious city of

Istanbul. One rainy afternoon in Istanbul, a woman walks into a

doctor's surgery. 'I need to have an abortion', she announces. She

is nineteen years old and unmarried. What happens that afternoon

will change her life. Twenty years later, Asya Kazanci lives with

her extended family in Istanbul. Due to a mysterious family curse,

all the Kaznci men die in their early forties, so it is a house of

women, among them Asya's beautiful, rebellious mother Zeliha, who

runs a tattoo parlour; Banu, who has newly discovered herself as

clairvoyant; and Feride, a hypochondriac obsessed with impending

disaster. And when Asya's Armenian-American cousin Armanoush comes

to stay, long hidden family secrets connected with Turkey's

turbulent past begin to emerge. Elif Shafak has emerged as one of

the most distinctive voices in both English and Turkish

contemporary literature; her novels, The Flea Palace, The Forty

Rules of Love, The Gaze and Honour, are consistently at the top of

bestseller lists across the globe. Elif Shafak's examination of

national identity, The Happiness of Blond People is available as

part of the Penguin Specials series - a digital only series of

shorts designed with commuters in mind. Publikace: The Bastard of Istanbul - Shafak, E.. When The Bastard of Istanbul was published in Turkey, Elif Shafak was accused by nationalist lawyers of insulting Turkish identity. The charges were later dropped, and now readers in America can discover for themselves this bold and powerful tale. Populated with vibrant characters, The Bastard of Istanbul is the story of two families, one Turkish and one Armenian American, and their struggle to forge their unique identities against the backdrop of Turkey's violent history. Filled with humor and understanding, this exuberant, dramatic novel is about memory and forgetting, about the tension between the need to examine the past and the desire to erase it.
