Praise

Praise for The Bastard of Istanbul:

“Zesty, imaginative . . . A Turkish version of Amy Tan’s The Joy Luck Club.”
USA Today

“Shafak’s writing is seductive. . . . The Bastard of Istanbul portrays family as more than merely a function of genetics and fate, folding together history and fiction, the personal and the political into a thing of beauty.”
Elle

“[This] saucy, witty, dramatic, and affecting tale in the spirit of novels by Amy Tan, Julia Alvarez, and Bharati Mukherjee should prove irresistible to readers. . . . A grandly emphatic and spellbinding story.”
New York Newsday 

“Beautifully imagined . . . this wonderful new novel carried me away. And reality was different when I returned.”
Chicago Tribune
