Requiem for a Lost City

Literaturhaus Basel

Discussion in English

Aslı Erdoğan, an internationally recognised symbol for resistance against the autocratic rule in her homeland, traces the path of her nameless heroine into exile, and describes her upbringing and involvement in political and cultural issues. At the same time, a melancholic declaration of love for the city. “Aslı Erdoğan’s prose is beautiful and richly imaginative.” (Ian McEwan)
