About the Author

Ahmet Altan, one of today’s most important Turkish writers and journalists, was arrested in September 2016. An advocate for Kurdish and Armenian minorities and a central figure in the Turkish cultural world (Nobel Prize winner Orhan Pamuk has written about his arrest and signed an open letter calling for his release), he is the author of five successful novels. The first, published when he was twenty-seven years old, won the Grand Prix from the Akademi Publishing House. In 2009 he received the prestigious Prize for the Freedom and Future of the Media from the Media Foundation of Sparkasse Leipzig, and in 2011 he received the International Hrant Dink Award. The international bestseller Endgame was his English-language debut.
