Ali & Ramazan by Perihan Mağden
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.”
