I haven't read anything by Shafak yet, although I have her "The Bastard of Istanbul" near the top of my TBR pile. You are right, she doesn't seem to be mentioned much online!


Mysticism is one of her favorite topics - she talks about this in almost all interviews.
I wish you could read her in Turkish. She's not my favorite writer (I'm Turkish, by the way) but I admit she's definitely one of the most talented. She uses the language in a way most writers don't - you get the feeling that she's in love with words and she likes flirting with them.

I have not read anything by this author yet I have read many of Rumi's poem's and I'm guessing this book will become an easy way for future Rumi fans to become acquainted with his work. So we'll probably be seeing reprints of his poetry books coming out soon. This book I have noticed is appearing more and more on-line in the form of advertising...I bet it's just starting it's press coverage. I have requested it from our library as soon as they receive a copy. I'll let you know what I think!

I have not heard of this book or this author but I am definitely intrigued. I am putting it on my tbr list!
