The Prisoner of Ankara

A Novel

by Suat Dervis Translated by Maureen Freely

Praise for In the Shadow of the Yalı:

“The Madame Bovary of Turkish literature…Although the story is, in many ways, universal, Dervis brilliantly captures the particularities of Turkish society and its struggle with modernity. This rare gem is finally available in English thanks to Maureen Freely’s masterful translation.” —The Guardian, Top 10 Novels about Turkey

In the Shadow of the Yalı is a rare gem—a romantic character study, a social novel, and a feminist critique on patriarchy and capitalism. Suat Derviş explores the depths of social conditioning, the emptiness of chasing wealth, and the freedoms—imagined or actual—provided by lust and desire.” —Ilana Masad, author of All My Mother’s Lovers
