In this boundary-crossing short story collection, established and emerging Turkish women writers explore Europe, its landscapes, cities and stations. They experience its pleasures, freedoms and frustrations. They contemplate “home,” where it is, what it means. From playful and picaresque to passionate and politicized, the stories feature an array of intriguing characters with diverse backgrounds and lives, yet who all have in common a journey to a European country—as a refugee, an immigrant, a conference participant, a student, an au pair, a tourist.
For a simple or life-or-death reason, they each take a leap…

An original, enlightening and enriching read, Europe in Women's Short Stories from Turkey illuminates corners and experiences of Europe that may be unfamiliar to readers, and imbues with new meaning the places they know, when seen through the distinctive eyes of these adventurous women writers. Featuring short stories by 23 women writers, including Erendiz Atasü, Zeynep Avcı, Karin Karakaşlı, Hatice Meryem, Suzan Samancı, Mine Söğüt and more.
