"An excellent resource for comparative literature, Turkish and Middle Eastern literature courses."
"A stunning achievement. This book should be a major contribution to the teaching of world literature. Seyhan has, I believe, 'reimagined' the Turkish novel in a way that makes it accessible to classrooms."
―Walter G. Andrews, University of Washington
"[O]ccasions to call a study a landmark tend to be rare . . . [Seyhan's volume] without any doubt deserves this predicate. It not only "offers a much-needed guide to the vast, underexplored territory of modern Turkish literature" . . . but is actually the first one to do so comprehensively and on an academic level in a western language since the publication of Bombaci's Storia [and] is the very first of its kind to appear in English. . . . The author is excellently equipped for this project. [Her approach] is an excellent way to appeal to non-specialists and to make Turkish literature "readable" for them. . . . The book is full of inspiring and useful insights. [I] use the book in class [and] recommend it both to students of Middle Eastern literature and of World Literature, both beginners and advanced."
―Stephan Guth, Middle Eastern Literatures
