Notes:
Translated from the Turkish.
This translation originally published: 2016.
The bestselling Turkish classic of love and loss in a changing world, with a new introduction by David Selim Sayers'A heart-breaker . . . it has the kind of indefinably powerful impact of The Great Gatsby' Observer'It is, perhaps, easier to dismiss a man whose face gives no indication of an inner life. And what a pity that is: a dash of curiosity is all it takes to stumble upon treasures we never expected.'A shy young man leaves his home in rural Turkey to learn a trade in 1920s Berlin. The city's crowded streets, thriving arts scene, passionate politics and seedy cabarets provide the backdrop for a chance meeting with a woman, which will haunt him for the rest of his life. Emotionally powerful, intensely atmospheric and touchingly profound, Madonna in a Fur Coat is an unforgettable novel about new beginnings and the unfathomable nature of the human soul.'A miniature masterpiece' The National'A gorgeously melancholic romance' Irish Times
