‘The Stone Building and Other Places’ by Aslı Erdoğan

Turkish novelist Aslı Erdoğan was released from pre-trial detention in December 2016 after spending 133 days in jail. She had been arrested and charged under Article 302 of the Turkish Penal Code: Disrupting the unity and integrity of the state. The charges were brought as she was a member of the advisory board of Özgür Gündem, a newspaper since shuttered over links to the outlawed Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK).
