About the Author

Ahmet Altan, one of today's most important Turkish writers and journalists, was arrested in September 2016 and is serving a life sentence on false charges. An advocate for Kurdish and Armenian minorities and a strong voice of dissent in his country, his arrest and conviction received widespread international criticism (51 Nobel laureates signed an open letter to Turkey's president calling for Altan's release). Altan is the author of ten novels--all bestsellers in Turkey--and seven books of essays. In 2009 he received the Freedom and Future of the Media Prize from the Media Foundation of Sparkasse Leipzig, and in 2011 he was awarded the International Hrant Dink Award. The international bestseller Endgame was his English-language debut, and was named one of the fifty notable works of fiction of 2017 by The Washington Post. Like a Sword Wound is the winner of the prestigious Yunus Nadi Novel Prize in Turkey.


"Ahmet Altan is one of the foremost voices in Turkish literature and has much to say to the world."--Elif Shafak, author of The Bastard of Istanbul and Three Daughters of Eve

"The period details are abundant and accurate; [...] and turn-of-the-century Istanbul, both beautiful and corrupt, comes vividly to life."--Wendy Smith, Publishers Weekly on Like a Sword Wound

"Sweeping and superbly written, Love in the Days of Rebellion sheds light on one of the most painful and overlooked chapters of Ottoman history, perfectly combining literature and historiography."--Medioriente e dintorni

"The entire novel radiates with extreme beauty."--Critica Letteraria

"Existential questions perfectly blended with atmosphere and rat-a-tat prose; highly recommended."--Library Journal (Starred Review) on Endgame

"Although it offers an implicit critique of Turkey's corrupt justice system, Endgame is also comic and charmingly absurd, largely due to the reckless efforts of its characters to get even."--The Washington Post on Endgame
