Elif Shafak

The Architect`s Apprentice

€ 18.95


`From the acclaimed author of The Bastard of Istanbul, a colorful, magical tale set during the height of the Ottoman Empire In her latest novel, Turkey`s preeminent female writer spins an epic tale spanning nearly a century in the life of the Ottoman Empire. In 1540, twelve-year-old Jahan arrives in Istanbul. As an animal tamer in the sultan`s menagerie, he looks after the exceptionally smart elephant Chota and befriends (and falls for) the sultan`s beautiful daughter, Princess Mihrimah. A palace education leads Jahan to Mimar Sinan, the empire`s chief architect, who takes Jahan under his wing as they construct (with Chota`s help) some of the most magnificent buildings in history. Yet even as they build Sinan`s triumphant masterpieces-the incredible Suleymaniye and Selimiye mosques-dangerous undercurrents begin to emerge, with jealousy erupting among Sinan`s four apprentices. A memorable story of artistic freedom, creativity, and the clash between science and fundamentalism, Shafak`s intricate novel brims with vibrant characters, intriguing adventure, and the lavish backdrop of the Ottoman court, where love and loyalty are no match for raw power`-
