Praise

“Compelling…fearless and eloquent.” —Wall Street Journal

“[An] affecting novel about love, loss, and personal identity…Livaneli smoothly switches between 2001 and 1938–1942, offering insights into Turkey’s rich cultural, political, ethnic, and religious divides. Livaneli’s worthy portrait of a man coming to terms with his tragic past and a woman coming to terms with her Turkish heritage delivers a forceful plea for openness and tolerance.” —Publishers Weekly

“Heartbreakingly vivid…Livaneli’s passion in exposing Turkey’s and the West’s culpability in real massacres is eloquent…[Serenade for Nadia is] hard to forget.” —Kirkus Reviews

“Writer. Musician. Philosopher. Zülfü Livaneli is one of my favorite authors. With Serenade for Nadia, he has written a masterpiece about love and music, connecting Turkey’s complex and rich history to the present day. So happy that Livaneli’s words can now inspire millions more with this new English translation, and that the world will get to know one of the true cultural treasures coming out of Turkey.” —Hamdi Ulukaya, CEO of Chobani

“This wonderfully evocative novel does far more than introduce one of Turkey’s great creative artists to American audiences. It is also a fast-paced and intensely emotional account of modern history that leads us to reflect on the ways that people and nations confront their past.” —Stephen Kinzer, author of Crescent and Star: Turkey Between Two Worlds

“A great book about a lifelong love.” —Frankfurter Allgemeiner Zeitung

“A symphony that reads like a classic.” —Neue Zurcher Zeitung

“An exciting and informative book that you will not be able to put down.” —Stuttgarter Zeitung

“An immensely thrilling novel.” —The Press

Praise for Bliss:

“I loved this book so much that I sent a fan letter to the publisher, and demanded to be introduced to the author when I went to Istanbul. Bliss is fresh, original, and warm-hearted, the work of a cosmopolitan insider and multi-talented artist.” —Louis de Bernières, author of Corelli’s Mandolin

“With lush scenes of Turkish life and nuanced depictions of the [characters’] inner lives…a convergence of lost, likable souls.” —Entertainment Weekly

“Eye-opening and deeply moving—essential for anyone looking for decency in the world today.” —Kirkus Reviews(starred review)
