The Bosphorus Review of Books
As the non-fiction section editor for the Bosphorus Review of Books, I write bi-monthly book reviews and I curate all of our book review submissions. I’m very excited to be an editor at the Bosphorus Review, as it is a blossoming English language literary outlet in Istanbul.
Here is a list of my work published in the Bosphorus Review:
- Review: Natural Novel by Georgi Gospodinov
- Mind your Suffixes: On the Turkish Themes in The Idiot by Elif Batuman
- The Camera and Narrative Agency: “Blow-up” by Julio Cortázar
- Why you should read: Memed, My Hawk by Yashar Kemal
- Why you should read: Kafka’s Curse by Achmat Dangor
