Three Books About Cities

SOMETIMES THE BEST WAY TO GET TO KNOW A CITY IS THROUGH A BOOK. WE’VE CHOSEN THREE BOOKS THAT IDENTIFY WITH THEIR CITIES.

NEW YORK TRILOGY
Paul Auster’s New York Trilogy (City of Glass, Ghosts, The Locked Room) consists of three special novels with a detective flavor in which the main character is the city itself.

Previously published separately, the three books have now been issued in a single volume. You will roam the streets of New York as you read about themes of language and alienation in Paul Auster’s inimitable style.

AUGUST HOLIDAY - TURIN
Both the city and the villages in the countryside around it form the backdrop for the short stories in this book by Turin writer Cesare Pavese (now published in Turkish by Can Yayınları).

The Piemonte countryside and the banks of the Po, where a boy growing in the Turin of that period spent his summers, take on a festival atmosphere.
