  • Gece Sesleri (Turkish)

    The novel “Sounds of the Night” is a family saga of rich Ortachlias living in Anatolia, which covers the history of four generations. The action takes place mainly in Anatolia, on the Bozova estate, from the 1920s to the early 2000s. The luxurious Ortachlia Palace keeps a lot of secrets, intrigues or love stories of its inhabitants. The example of the Ortachlia family clearly shows the events that took place in Turkey during this period, the political battles and the endless military coups that had an impact on the society of that time, on the relations between the generations. The novel tells a lot of stories of different characters, the logical end of which is the secret revealed by the diary accidentally discovered by the daughter in the mother’s drawer, which answers all the questions and turns the reader’s attitude towards this or that character upside down. The novel was received with great interest by the readers from the beginning, however, in recent years Aishe Culin has shared the fate of Elif აფafak and has also appeared to critics who have sharply criticized the writer for his moments depicting pedophilia.

  • Harem

    This novel ties together the lives of a girl who is taken from her family when she is 7 years old to be raised in the Ottoman harem and a young woman who is getting married at about that same time. Their stories are told side by side, smoothly shifting back and forth between narratives and their connection is tantalizingly concealed until late in the story. There is a moment in the book when one character appears in the other character’s story and the reader discovers how the two stories, seemingly isolated, were in fact connected from the beginning. Though they have lead more or less completely separate lives, they learn the same lesson and are able to ultimately make peace with themselves.

  • Hymnes à l’amour

    Présentation de l’éditeur
    Pourquoi le père d’Anne a-t-il demandé, dans son testament, qu’on donne à une certaine dame résidant à Genève le disque bien connu d’Edith Piaf Hymne à l’amour ? Pourquoi la même chanson a-t-elle une si grande importance pour sa mère, comme si elle avait été l’hymne national d’une passion défunte ?Plus tard, bien plus tard, Anne partira pour Genève, à la recherche de la mystérieuse dame qu’avait aimée son père. Ce beau livre, écrit avec tendresse, recèle bien d’autres histoires. Par exemple celle de Madeleine, qui avait illuminé les jeunes années de l’auteur. Il était si doux, pour les enfants, de se blottir contre ses jolis seins. Malgré la déchéance finale de Madeleine, elle aussi inspire un hymne à l’amour.De temps en temps, l’illustre grand-père, François Mauriac, apparaît au moment le plus insolite. Va-t-il se fâcher ? Le temps qui a passé permet d’en rire. On oublie pour un instant tous ces cœurs blessés, qu’Anne Wiazemsky sait faire renaître avec l’ambiguïté du souvenir.

  • Les séparées

    Présentation de l’éditeur
    Quand s’ouvre le roman, le 10 mai 1981, Alice et Cécile ont seize ans. Trente ans plus tard, celles qui depuis l’enfance ne se quittaient pas se sont perdues. Alice, installée dans un café, laisse vagabonder son esprit, tentant inlassablement, au fil des réflexions et des souvenirs, de comprendre la raison de cette rupture amicale, que réactivent d’autres chagrins. Plongée dans un semi-coma, Cécile, elle, écrit dans sa tête des lettres imaginaires à Alice. Tissant en une double trame les décennies écoulées, les voix des deux jeunes femmes déroulent le fil de leur histoire. Depuis leur rencontre, elles ont tout partagé : leurs premiers émois amoureux, leurs familles, leur passion pour la littérature, la bande-son et les grands moments des « années Mitterrand ». Elles ont même rêvé à un avenir professionnel commun.

  • Permis C

    Avec Permis C, prequel au roman Le Cul entre deux chaises (2014), Joseph Incardona revient à son personnage fétiche et alter ego, André Pastrella. Dans une alternance bien pesée d’humour et de noirceur, il y parle des bouleversements de l’enfance, de ce que chacun de nous rencontre pour la première fois. Roman initiatique, du souvenir, roman des tragédies et légendes de la vie immigrée, il est aussi une formidable mise en perspective fictionnelle des épreuves qui nous déterminent.



    Stump makes you feel that you are reading on the edge of a life in a fierce gale, vulnerable, excited, alive.” ―The Guardian (London)

    Wet an spectacular wreckage leads to “powerful forgetting” which leads to “periodics” which lead to the “dry drunks” which go to “immersion” an “enabler” an “therapeutic alliance” an any alternative, any fuckin alternative atropine aversion therapy or Antabuse or ECT or acufuckinpuncture or snakepits or swimming with dolphins an all of that all of it comes completely back to this one pure irreducible phenomenon: a booming heart that burns to drink.

    It has taken the loss of a limb and a death threat from the Mob to make one Liverpudlian dry out and move to a small seaside town in Wales. But his past life is a recurring nightmare―filth, desperation, and blackouts. And more trouble is only a hundred miles away. Darren and Alastair leave Liverpool, heading south in a rickety old car. They have been sent by their gang boss to wreak violent revenge, but they have only a rough idea of their quarry: a one-armed man.

    Interspersed between the scabrous banter and a pitch-perfect street dialect, Niall Griffiths offers stunning descriptions of the Welsh landscape and a dark, knowing humor. Despite the ever present drugs, violence, and anger, he reveals a fragile humanity. Graywolf is proud to introduce this striking, distinctive voice to American readers.

  • Widow with Child

    In the mid-19th century, in a valley in the Ticino, a woman in her 70s, Anna Maria, is the butt of finger-pointing and name-calling: she’s the “vile woman”, the “black widow”. She is indeed a widow, unbending and focused only on her grandson, whom she shields from the hatred of the villagers.  But her life is soon changed by the arrival  in the village of don Tommaso Barbisio,  a sophisticated but disgraced priest from Piedmont. The old lady is taken on as his housekeeper and she sees in this a glimmer of hope for a solution for her grandson,  an escape from the burden of the sins of his forefathers. Don Tommaso’s curiosity is aroused by the way the widow is ostracised by the village and eventually gets her to tell him her story. It’s a tale of theft, smuggling and murder, which gradually lifts the veil  on her past, a past that goes back several generations and implicates numerous families in the village. It brings to light the relentlessness of fate and the unremitting nature of ancestral hatred.If don Tommaso is a fictional character, Anna Maria really existed, along with her husband, whose crimes were the origin  of a legend that has rung down across the generations. Widow with Child is a story that lies somewhere between historical narrative and romantic invention, told amid the buzz and chatter of several languages; on stage are two enigmatic but intensely human people, whose lives will be defined by the very fact of their meeting.
