  • "aNever before published in English, Orhan Pamuk's second novel is the story of a Turkish family gathering in the shadow of the impending military coup of 1980. In an old mansion in Cennethisar, a former fishing village near Istanbul, a widow, Fatma, awaits the annual summer visit of her grandchildren. She has lived in the village for decades, ever since her husband, an idealistic young doctor, ran afoul of the sultan's grand vizier and arrived to serve the poor fishermen. Now mostly bedridden, she is attended by her constant servant Recep, a dwarf--and the doctor's illegitimate son. Despite mutual dependency, there is no love lost between mistress and servant, who have very different recollections--and grievances--from the early years, before Cennethisar grew into a high-class resort surrounding the family house, now in shambles. Though eagerly anticipated, Fatma's grandchildren bring little consolation. The eldest, Faruk, a dissipated historian, wallows in alcohol as he laments his inability to tell the story of the past from the kaleidoscopic pieces he finds in the local archive; his sensitive leftist sister, Nilgun, has yet to discover the real-life consequences of highminded politics; and Metin, a high school nerd, tries to keep up with the lifestyle of his spoiled society schoolmates while he fantasizes about going to America--an unaffordable dream unless he can persuade his grandmother to tear down her house. But it is Recep's nephew Hasan, a high school dropout, lately fallen in with right-wing nationalists, who will draw the visiting family into the growing political cataclysm issuing from Turkey's tumultuous century-long struggle for modernity. By turns deeply moving, hilarious, and terrifying, Silent House"
  • "Kurz vor dem Militärputsch im September 1980: Drei Geschwister verbringen eine Ferienwoche im alten Haus ihrer Großmutter Fatma am Marmarameer. Nilgün liest Turgenjew und träumt von einer Revolution in der Türkei, ihr Bruder Metin von einer Zukunft in den USA. Faruk, der Älteste, ist über die Trauer um seine geschiedene Frau zum Trinker geworden. Vor dem Hintergrund einer explosiven politischen Lage schildert der Nobelpreisträger Orhan Pamuk in diesem Frühwerk eine verlorene Jugend, die nach ihrem Platz in der Welt sucht und ihn nicht findet. Ein melancholischer, stimmungsvoller Roman, in dem Pamuk verschiedensten Personen eine ganz eigene Stimme verleiht."

  • "Nobel Laureate Orhan Pamuk's second novel is the moving story of a family gathering the summer before the Turkish military coup of 1980. In a crumbling mansion in Cennethisar (formerly a fishing village, now a posh resort near Istanbul) the old widow Fatma awaits the annual summer visit of her grandchildren: Faruk, a dissipated failed historian; his sensitive leftist sister, Nilgun; and the younger grandson, Metin, a high school student drawn to the fast life of the nouveaux riches, who dreams of going to America. The widow has lived in the village for decades, ever since her husband, an idealistic young doctor, first arrived to serve the poor fishermen. Now mostly bedridden, she is attended by her faithful servant Recep, a dwarf - and the doctor's illegitimate son. Mistress and servant share memories, and grievances, of those early years. But it is Recep's cousin Hassan, a high school dropout and fervent right-wing nationalist, who will draw the visiting family into the growing political cataclysm, in this spellbinding novel depicting Turkey's tumultuous century-long struggle for modernity."
