Description

The moving story of a Turkish family gathering in the shadow of the impending military coup of 1980.

In an old mansion in a village near Istanbul, a widow awaits the annual visit of her grandchildren. She has lived in the village for decades, ever since her husband, an idealistic young doctor, first arrived to serve the poor fishermen. Now mostly bedridden, she is attended by her faithful servant Recep, a dwarf - and her late husband's illegitimate son.

But it is Recep's nephew Hassan, a high-school dropout lately fallen in with right-wing nationalists, who will draw the family into Turkey's century-long struggle for modernity.

Never before published in English. Silent House is Orhan Pamuk's second novel.
