The Flea Palace

The Flea Palace

Shafak Elif

By turns comic and tragic, The Flea Palace is an outstandingly original novel driven by an overriding senseof social justice. Bonbon Palace was once a stately apartment block in Istanbul.

Now it is a sadly dilapidated home to ten wildly different individuals and their families. There's a womanizing, hard-drinking academic with a penchant for philosophy, a 'clean freak' and her lice-ridden daughter, a lapsed Jew in search of true love, and a charmingly naive mistress whose shadowy past lurks in the building. When the garbage at Bonbon Palace is stolen, a mysterious sequence of events unfolds that result in a soul-searching quest for truth. Shortlisted for the Independent Foreign Fiction Prize 'Picaresque.' The Guardian 'Hyper-active and hilarious . . . Shafak's literary success and journalism mark her out as a figurehead of a new generation of writers.' Independent Translated from the Turkish by Muge Gocek
