Review

A truly captivating work of immense power and beauty -- Philippe Sands

Haunting, moving, beautifully written -- Peter Frankopan

A rich, sensual novel... This is a novel that gives voice to the invisible, the untouchable, the abused and the damaged, weaving their painful songs into a thing of beauty. -- Francesca Segal ― Financial Times

One of the best writers in the world today -- Hanif Kureishi

Shafak is the most exciting Turkish novelist to reach western readers in yearsIrish Times

A terrific book. Poetic, poignant, trenchant -- Ian Rankin on 'Three Daughters of Eve'

A thoughtful, charming book that offers a connection to other worlds, perspectives and possibilities ― Sunday Times on 'Three Daughters of Eve'

A brave and passionate novel -- Paul Theroux on 'Bastard of Istanbul'

A vivid carnival of life and death, cruelty and kindness, love, politics and deep humanity. This is only possible in the hands of a consummate storyteller.
Elif Shafak's lyrical command of language and narrative is breathtaking. Brilliant! -- Helena Kennedy

Elif Shafak brings into the written realm what so many others want to leave outside. Spend more than ten minutes and 38 seconds in this world of the estranged. Shafak makes a new home for us in words -- Colum McCann

Elif Shafak's extraordinary Ten Minutes, 38 Seconds in this Strange World is a work of brutal beauty and consummate tenderness, a wild shout of life from out of the lower depths of destitution and prostitution, indeed from beyond the grave itself. Every page throbs with unruly vitality, the sense- saturating colours scents and sounds of raw Istanbul, all registered with poetic sharpness. It's a book which for all its ordeals is a profoundly moving, at times lyrical, celebration of humanity's obstinate fight for life against the steepest of odds -- Simon Schama

A heartbreaking meditation on the ways in which social forces can destroy a life. Elif Shafak can be unsparing, lyrical, political, intimate...
Several novels live in this one, and all of them are moving, generous and elegantly written -- Juan Gabriel Vasquez --This text refers to the paperback edition.
