Reading the description of the book along with the reviews I thought it would be a good book but my god what a dull book! And it was just the latest episode in a series of increasingly savage attacks on independent publishing and journalism.

The works for which he was most admired in his time were imbued by his dreams for the common man, and rooted in his knowledge of the injustices they suffered. Ten years later, an old acquaintance of Raif from Berlin, who is also a relative of Maria, meets Raif in Ankara, with a child beside her. the story conveyns the depth and complexity of human mind and feelings, mystery of love, doubts and loneliness.

When at last they make friends, it becomes clear that Raif’s reason for living cannot be his family.

After his release, he moved on to a job in the city of Konya, to be imprisoned again, after having been found guilty of reciting a poem critical of Ataturk. There he finds a sick Maria, who is finally convinced that Raif is not like any other man and actually is in love with her. If the quality of a novel is based on the quality of the characterisation, then this is certainly a sure-fire hit.The _ga cookie, installed by Google Analytics, calculates visitor, session and campaign data and also keeps track of site usage for the site's analytics report. Perhaps it was Ali's lyrical and introspective prose, each word carefully woven like work of an artisan, that lingered and gave a glimpse of the innermost thoughts and desires of his characters.

He ends up at Wannsee, and his thoughts are occupied with questions of intimacy and a meaning in life as he thinks how Heinrich von Kleist and his lover committed suicide together at the very view, and he decides to go back to Maria's house. These were seen (and perhaps intended) to refer to the leader of the single party state, İsmet Pasha.

The gap between hope and reality, art and ordinary life, has been explored in many other novels, but rarely with the unaffected simplicity of Madonna in a Fur Coat. They are only too aware that the space for free expression, and even free thought, is diminishing every day. Here he meets the sickly, affectless Raif Bey, who is, we’re told, “the sort of man who causes us to ask ourselves: “What do they live for? Emotionally powerful, intensely atmospheric and touchingly profound, Madonna in a Fur Coat is an unforgettable novel about new beginnings and the unfathomable nature of the human soul.
