Editorial Reviews

Review

"Elif Shafak's new novel reveals such a timely confluence of today's issues that it seems almost clairvoyant . . . There are novels you want to cherish in the sanctity of your own adoration, and then there are novels you feel impatient to talk about with others. Press Three Daughters of Eve on a friend or your book club for a great conversation about this flammable era we live in now." - Washington Post

"Three Daughters of Eve . . . offers a complex portrayal of Turkey." - New Yorker

"Turkey's best-known female novelist, Elif Shafak, has been building a body of work that needles her country's historical amnesia . . . The ways in which an unresolved past can fuel present-day tensions is the subject of Shafak's vivid and timely eighth novel." - Vogue

"A beautifully rendered tale of homeland and faith." - Marie Claire

"Safak is one of Turkey's most popular novelists, and her fiction and nonfiction has been translated around the world. Three Daughters of Eve, her 10th novel, takes place in contemporary Istanbul, but looks back on an earlier era, as Peri, a wealthy housewife, recalls her friendship with two fellow students at Oxford University. Together, these three young women became close through their studies, debating the role of women in Islam, and falling under the influence of a charismatic but controversial professor. The scandal that broke them apart still haunts Peri." - The Millions, "Most Anticipated"

"Rich and complex . . . Shafak explores themes of femininity and spirituality and extremism and political oppression in a way that feels thoughtful and refreshing." - Harpers Bazaar

"This is a truly modern novel--about the way we are shaped by politics, including freedom of expression and political repression, but also by our personal relationships." - Sadiq Khan, Financial Times, "Best Books of 2017"

"From Turkish writer Elif Shafak, Three Daughters of Eve follows a wealthy woman in Istanbul whose university friendships become touchstones as she navigates politics of Islam and feminism." - San Diego Magazine, "5 Books to Read in December"

"Shafaq has masterfully created equally lush portraits of warm and complicated Istanbul and cold and collected Oxford. . . . Three Daughters of Eveis a marvelous lesson in multiculturalist angst, the clash between modernity and tradition, and the vicissitudes of personal struggle. A must-read that entertains and informs without preaching." - New York Journal of Books

"Shafak is a brilliant chronicler of the ills that plague contemporary society and once again proves her mettle." - Booklist

"[Shafak's] portrait of a woman in existential crisis feels universal, shining clarifying light on Islam--and religious spirituality in general--within the frame of today's world." - Kirkus Reviews

"Readers interested in debates about the nature of God will find the book intriguing." - Publishers Weekly

"Shafak deftly captures Peri's struggles with faith, her attempts to please the people she loves and her ongoing attempts at the art of feigning happiness." - Starred review, Shelf Awareness

"Turkish author Shafak uses rich, thought-provoking prose to illuminate women's struggles and fuse Islam with feminist theory. Like her compatriot Orhan Pamuk, Shafak illustrates the ongoing fissure between Eastern and Western culture in Turkey." - Library Journal

"In striking, lovely language, Shafak considers Islamophobia, teacher-student relationships and terrorism of many kinds. Fresh and timely, this is an approachable novel of big ideas." - BookPage

"Timely, fascinating. . . Three Daughters of Eve slowly teases out the defining moments in the life of its Muslim protagonist." - The Seattle Times

"Elif Shafak's urgent, topical novel explores the ambiguities and dangers of being caught in the Land of Between. The book's protagonist, Peri, is torn between her mother and her father, between her love and hate for a charismatic professor, between the double lures of religiosity and secularism. Three Daughters of Eve upends the omnipresent but crude truisms of East and West, oppression and liberation, right and wrong that continue to divide, torment, and haunt us all." - Siri Hustvedt
