Praise for Songs My Mother Never Taught Me:

“A deft, zinging whodunnit which is also a metaphysical puzzle worthy of the Oulipo group. Altun’s prose has a dreamlike urgency; his novel is a major achievement.”—John Ashbery

“This intelligent thriller from Altun, his first to be published in the U.S., nicely evokes modern Istanbul. . . . The lean prose and deft pacing make this more than a routine revenge tale.’”—Publishers Weekly

Kemal’s friend mysteriously disappears, leaving him a generous allowance and the use of his large house.

He discovers that his new dwelling involves an inheritance of $1.3 million, and a Russian nobleman’s missing son. Kemal embarks on a missing person case that will bring chaos and romance to his life.

Clues lead him from Istanbul to Buenos Aires, Boston, and eventually Baltimore, where Kemal visits the Edgar Allan Poe House and Museum. There in the museum is a poster announcing the Nevar Foundation’s offer of $200,000 to the winner of a first novel competition.

Kemal buys paper and a pen. He has decided to enter the Nevar competition with his first mystery novel, called Many and Many a Year Ago.

Selçuk Altun was born in Artvin, Turkey, in 1950. Telegram published Songs My Mother Never Taught Me in 2008. He lives in Istanbul and is a retired banking executive and bibliophile.

About the Author:

Selcuk Altun was born in Artvin, Turkey. He lives in Istabul and Songs My Mother Never Taught Me was his fourth novel to be published in Turkish. He is a retired banking executive and a bibliophile.

From Publishers Weekly:

Altun's second novel to be made available in the U.S. has a premise almost as intriguing as his first, Songs My Mother Never Taught Me, but the execution is less successful. Kemal Kuray's meteoric ascent to the top of the Turkish Air Force comes to an abrupt end after the engine of the plane he's piloting fails. Barely escaping serious injury, he's assigned to coordinate a secret translation project, during which he befriends Suat Altan, a technology consultant working on the project to complete his military service. Later, Kemal learns from Suat's identical twin, Fuat, that Suat, who's vanished, has left behind a cryptic note for Kemal and arranged for monthly payments to him of $5,000 a month after his retirement. Kemal spends the rest of the book seeking the purpose, as well as the true meaning, of Suat's message. If Poe's fans are meant to be enticed by the title, taken from Poe's poem Annabel Lee, they will find little to chew on. (Sept.)
