Turkish novelist Orhan Pamuk is a Nobel Prize winner in Literature whose books have sold more than eleven million copies in sixty languages, but though he has taught extensively in the United States, he still remains relatively unknown here. The Silent House, his second novel, has won multiple awards, but it has never previously published in English. According to Pamuk, this fiction is his most popular work among young people and it's easy to see why. Set just one month before the 1980 Turkish coup, the novel features chapters by five rotating narrators and follows a brief summer family gathering in a beach resort near Istanbul. Political differences and generational change resonate strongly in this powerful, plausible literary creation.
