Talking Turkish

We talk to author Ayfer Tunç about her rumbustious novel of many characters, 'The Highly Unreliable Account of the History of a Madhouse', along with translator Feyza Howell. As this literary palimpsest unfolds, the reader travels through time and space, to 1875 and back again, between the Caucasus, Ottoman and Republican Turkey, Europe and the USA, through wars, reform, riots, and coups d’état.
