Ali & Ramazan by Perihan Mağden

Catherine McKimm

Book Club: Reading Turkey in English

The first book our Book Club will read in English is based on a true story:

“Based on a true story, Ali and Ramazan tells the story of two doomed adolescents, who meet in an orphanage and fall in love with each other. Perihan Mağden, a leading name in contemporary Turkish literature, has always sought to tell her stories in a straightforward style, and this novel is a fine example of her distinctive prose. Mağden vividly conveys the alienation and dreariness of life on the edge, conveying painful truths without resorting to melodrama.”

Catherine McKimm: An avid reader, reluctant lawyer, committed teacher and published author. Mother of four, married to a fabulous cook, she loves eating but not cooking. Born in Sydney, Australia, and based, for now, in wonderful Istanbul, she is a dedicated world traveller and loves to experience the different cultures and people that make this planet such an inspiring place to live.
