  • BLACK MILK

    A thoughtful and incisive meditation on literature, motherhood, and spiritual wellbeing from Turkey’s leading female author

    After the birth of her first child, Elif Shafak experienced a profound personal crisis. Plagued by guilt, anxiety, and bewilderment about her new maternal role, the acclaimed novelist stopped writing for the first time in her life. As she plummeted into post-partum depression, Shafak looked to the experiences of other prominent female writers–including Sylvia Plath, Virginia Woolf, Simone de Beauvoir, and Alice Walker–for help navigating the conflict between motherhood and artistic creation in a male-dominated society. Searingly honest, eloquent, and unexpectedly humorous, “Black Milk” will be widely embraced by writers, academics, and anyone who has undergone the identity crisis engendered by being a mother.

  • THE GAZE

    I didn’t say anything. I didn’t return his smiles. I looked at him in the wide mirror in front of where I was sitting. I grew uncomfortable and avoided my eyes. I hate those who think fat people are stupid. ‘

    An obese woman and her lover, a dwarf, are sick of being stared at wherever they go, and so decide to reverse roles. The man goes out wearing make up and the woman draws a mustache on her face. But while the woman wants to hide away from the world, the man meets the stares from passers-by head on, compiling his ‘Dictionary of Gazes’ to explore the boundaries between appearance and reality. Intertwined with the story of a bizarre freak-show organized in Istanbul in the 1880s, The Gaze considers the damage which can be inflicted by our simple desire to look at others.

  • THE ARCHITECT’S APPRENTICE

    In her latest novel, Turkey?s preeminent female writer spins an epic tale spanning nearly a century in the life of the Ottoman Empire. In 1540, twelve-year-old Jahan arrives in Istanbul. As an animal tamer in the sultan?s menagerie, he looks after the exceptionally smart elephant Chota and befriends (and falls for) the sultan?s beautiful daughter, Princess Mihrimah. A palace education leads Jahan to Mimar Sinan, the empire?s chief architect, who takes Jahan under his wing as they construct (with Chota?s help) some of the most magnificent buildings in history. Yet even as they build Sinan?s triumphant masterpieces?the incredible Suleymaniye and Selimiye mosques?dangerous undercurrents begin to emerge, with jealousy erupting among Sinan?s four apprentices.

    A memorable story of artistic freedom, creativity, and the clash between science and fundamentalism, Shafak?s intricate novel brims with vibrant characters, intriguing adventure, and the lavish backdrop of the Ottoman court, where love and loyalty are no match for raw power.

  • ALONE WITH YOU IN THE ETHER

    Chicago, sometime. Two people meet in the armory of the Art Institute by chance. Prior to their encounter, he is a doctoral student who manages his destructive thoughts with compulsive calculations about time travel; she is a bipolar counterfeit artist undergoing court-ordered psychotherapy. After their meeting, those things do not change.

    Everything else, however, is slightly different.

    Both obsessive, eccentric personalities, Aldo Damiani and Charlotte Regan struggle to be without each other from the moment they meet. The truth – that he is a clinically depressed, anti-social theoretician and she is a manipulative liar with a history of self-sabotage – means the deeper they fall in love, the more troubling their reliance on each other becomes.

  • FOURTH WING

    Welcome to the brutal and elite world of Basgiath War College, where everyone has an agenda, and every night could be your last . . .

    Twenty-year-old Violet Sorrengail was supposed to enter the Scribe Quadrant, living a quiet life among books and history. Now, the commanding general-also known as her tough-as-talons mother-has ordered Violet to join the hundreds of candidates striving to become the elite of Navarre: dragon riders.

    But when you’re smaller than everyone else and your body is brittle, death is only a heartbeat away . . . because dragons don’t bond to “fragile” humans. They incinerate them.

    With fewer dragons willing to bond than cadets, most would kill Violet to better their own chances of success. The rest would kill her just for being her mother’s daughter-like Xaden Riorson, the most powerful and ruthless wingleader in the Riders Quadrant.

    She’ll need every edge her wits can give her just to see the next sunrise.

    Yet, with every day that passes, the war outside grows more deadly, the kingdom’s protective wards are failing, and the death toll continues to rise. Even worse, Violet begins to suspect leadership is hiding a terrible secret.

    Alliances will be forged. Lives will be lost. Traitors will become allies . . . or even lovers. But sleep with one eye open because once you enter, there are only two ways out: graduate or die.
