Amy Spangler on the writing of Sevgi Soysal and running a literary agency in Istanbul

July 25, 2018

Turkey Book Talk episode #69 – Amy Spangler on the life and work of Sevgi Soysal, whose classic 1973 novel “Noontime in Yenişehir” she translated into English. She also discusses co-founding the literary agency AnatoliaLit and her work on “Seher,” a collection of stories penned in jail by former HDP co-chair Selahattin Demirtaş.

Download the episode or listen below.

Here’s my review of the (great) novel from a few weeks ago.
