Item description for Stories from the Sandgate by Jaklin Celik...

This book of short stories brings to life the panorama that is Istanbul's historic Kumkapi, its Sandgate. We are enticed by these glimpses into the lives of Armenians, Kurds, and Turks who are pushed and pulled by the energy of this cosmopolitan neighborhood.

You will be drawn in by the young woman passing out cigarettes at the women's ward or the transvestite prostitute Necla infuriating her neighbor; the middle-aged Onnik going on a long-awaited date or Armenian fisherman Migirdic arguing with his senile wife; the old man Kirkor in search of a young bride or the tough Kurdish mama Hazal on her first trip to Istanbul.

These captivating stories are accompanied by a Pronunciation Guide and a Glossary.
