Orhan Pamuk - Silent House --- at Sidwell Friends School **CANCELLED
at Sidwell Friends School
3825 Wisconsin Ave, NW
At last available in English, Silent House (Knopf, $26.95), the second novel by the 2006 Nobel winner Orhan Pamuk takes place in 1980 as Turkey is on the cusp of momentous changes. While a military coup hovers, the widowed Fatma hosts her visiting grandchildren. The ancestral house is falling apart, and the dreams of the younger generation seem in no better shape: the frustrated historian drinks, the misfit schoolboy dreams of escape to America, and the politically minded, on both right and left, wonder what lies ahead.
