‘We need the literature of other countries to expand our
horizons and stimulate our ideas. Without it, we are not only
diminished, we are starved’
(The Times, Magnus Linklater 29/06/05)
A Cup of Turkish Coffee
by Buket Uzuner
Age Range: 12+
This is a collection of eloquent stories in parallel Turkish-English text for older adolescents. In A Cup of Turkish Coffee a recipe for authentic Turkish coffee serves as an introduction to a collection of four evocative short stories.
Through these unusual narratives, Buket Uzuner transports the reader on a journey in which apparently trivial anecdotes give a deep insight into the psychology of the characters, their dreams, their thoughts and their sense of belonging. The book, aimed at both teenagers and adults gives a good insight into the work of one of the most celebrated authors in contemporary Turkish Literature for readers of both languages.
