About this deal

And though Maria Puder is the sort of free-thinking new woman he could never have imagined possible, the two form an intensely platonic friendship, in which Maria becomes more male than female, and Raif more female than male.

Ali is a well-known author in this country because his books have been read in schools in Bulgaria since 1950s. The city’s crowded streets, thriving arts scene, passionate politics and seedy cabarets provide the backdrop for a chance meeting with a woman, which will haunt him for the rest of his life, in this emotionally powerful, intensely atmospheric and touchingly profound novel about new beginnings and the unfathomable nature of the human soul. Sabahattin Ali (1907-1948) was born in the Ottoman town of Egridere (now Ardino in southern Bulgaria).Yet when Raif dies in poverty-stricken circumstances surrounded by bickering family, his diary comes to light.

And what a pity that is: a dash of curiosity is all it takes to stumble upon treasures we never expected. Ten years later, an old acquaintance of Raif from Berlin, who is also a relative of Maria, meets Raif in Ankara, with a child beside her.

Here he meets the sickly, affectless Raif Bey, who is, we’re told, “the sort of man who causes us to ask ourselves: “What do they live for? He moved from Ankara to Istanbul, to be drawn into the struggle against the fascists then dominating Turkey’s single party state. He has lost his will to live, and eventually marries a woman that she doesn't like, and lives with her in between the furniture he bought for Maria. The works for which he was most admired in his time were imbued by his dreams for the common man, and rooted in his knowledge of the injustices they suffered.Another hypothesis is that Ertekin handed him over to the security services, and he was killed during interrogation. Sabahattin Ali's daughter, Filiz Ali, in an interview with BBC, has stated that she found Maria was inspired by a real life acquaintance of Sabahattin. Mocked by shallow juniors at work and derided by many members of his family, he barely seems to exist. After proving his allegiance to Atatürk by writing the poem "Benim Aşkım" (literally: My Love or My Passion), he was assigned to the publications division at the Ministry of National Education. Madonna in a Fur Coat is a novel written by Turkish author Sabahattin Ali that was published in 1943.

Though he carried on working for state institutions, his dissident writings ultimately led to his being removed from his post in 1945. Ali’s murder, allegedly at the hands of an offended patriot, was echoed by the 2007 murder of the Turkish-Armenian journalist Hrant Dink.Facebook sets this cookie to show relevant advertisements to users by tracking user behaviour across the web, on sites that have Facebook pixel or Facebook social plugin.
