The Stone Building and Other Places by Aslı Erdoğan

Contemporary Turkish writer and journalist Aslı Erdoğan’s new short-story collection, The Stone Building and Other Places, which won the prestigious Sait Faik Short Story Award in Turkey in 2010, brings together narratives of suffering, trauma, and isolation. Already a best-seller in Turkey with nine reprints, this collection includes one of Erdoğan’s most well-known stories, “Wooden Birds,” the recipient of the Deutsche Welle Prize, and previously translated into English by Nebile Direkçgil in 2005 for Words Without Borders. After her 1998 novel, The City in Crimson Cloak, The Stone Building and Other Places will be the second English translation of Erdoğan’s work.
