The Stone Building and Other Places
Asli Erdogan, trans. from the Turkish by Sevinç Türkkan (Nov., $14.95, trade paper)
Profiled in the New Yorker, the subject of PEN International and PEN America advocacy campaigns
In her second work to be translated into English, author and journalist Erdogan offers three interconnected stories and a novella, which feature women whose lives have been interrupted by forces beyond their control—exile, serious illness, or the imprisonment of a loved one. Erdogan, who was imprisoned for four months last year following a failed coup attempt in Turkey, awaits trial on charges that could result in life imprisonment.
