Editorial Reviews for this title:
Synopsis:

In a crumbling mansion in a gentrified former fishing village on the Turkish coast, the widow Fatma awaits the annual visit of her grandchildren: Faruk, a dissipated historian; his sensitive leftist sister, Nilgün; and Metin, a high schooler drawn to the fast life of the nouveaux riche. Bedridden, Fatma is attended by her faithful servant Recep, a dwarf—and her late husband’s illegitimate son. Mistress and servant share memories, and grievances, from the past. But the arrival of Recep’s cousin, Hasan, a fervent right-wing nationalist, threatens to draw the family into the political cataclysm arising from Turkey’s tumultuous century-long struggle for modernity. Written in the 1980s but never before published in English, this spellbinding novel is a stunning addition to the works of Nobel Prize-winning author Orhan Pamuk.

Book Description: Vintage, 2013. Book Condition: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: Praise for Silent House: "Inspired and impassionedA microcosm of a country on the verge of a coupPamuk has a flattering faith in his reader' intelligenceThe book [is] threaded through with ideas of history, religion, memory class and politics. But it never seems didactic because the reader comes to realize that these reflections are aspects of the inner life: plausible components of the characters' psyches. I was glad to be transported to a seaside town in Turkey, to meet this odd family and their neighbors, all of whom seem to be living in several places at once: in the present and the past, in history, in everyday reality and in the simultaneously limitless and constricted worlds of their own mindsThe reading experience is so very pleasurable." -Francine Prose, New York Times Book Review "Propulsivein this quiet unassuming way does a wrenching story unfold, until an unexpected and hair-raising turnthe author's most accessible novel to datethe work of a great engineer." -Marie Arana, Washington Post "ImpressiveIt proves once and for all that Pamuk is truly one of the world's most versatile fiction writers, no matter the language in which he is readDespite the specificity of the novel's setting, the characters' respective struggles are universal; they could be any family, anywhere, at any time." -Jason Diamond, New York Observer "Pamuk builds a multi-faceted panorama distinguished by his customary intellectual richness and breadth." - Kirkus Reviews.
