BeschreibungFrom internationally acclaimed author Alev Lytle Croutier, Seven Houses chronicles the lives of four generations of remarkable women, sweeping readers from the last days of the Ottoman monarchy to Turkey's transformation into a republic and the present-day backlash. It is the saga of a silkmaking family as told through the houses they occupied. From a grand villa in Smyrna in the early twentieth century to a silk plantation in the foothills of Mount Olympus, from a tiny house in a sleepy town to an apartment in a modern urban high-rise, the family's dwellings reflect its fortune's rise and fall. As communal baths and odalisques give way to movies and cell phones, four unique yet powerfully linked women experience all of life's hardships and pleasures.
PortraitAlev Lytle Croutier wrote and directed the film adaptation of Tillie Olsen's TELL ME A RIDDLE. She is the author of the novella THE PALACE OF TEARS and two non-fiction works, HAREM: THE WORLD BEHIND THE VEIL and TAKING THE WATERS. Born and raised in Turkey, Croutier divides her time between San Francisco and Paris.
Pressestimmen"San Francisco Chronicle" A highly imaginative family saga...Croutier's measuered prose is artistic and sensuous.
