Engagement House

“Whatever it is they want to believe, let them.”

An ominous night where the Moon half-heartedly shines its light, a sandstorm kicks up clouds of dust seemingly out of nowhere, and fog descends on the streets… A blood-red tale that can’t quite be made out from a distance, but that leaves some blind, deaf, and mute when encountered up close…

Çiler İlhan traces the remnants of hazy images in the mirror of memory—ones that belong to truths known by all but un(able to be)mentioned in history. She gathers the whispers of fate from the screams of geography. Engagement House is a debut novel that roars what fate helplessly keeps quiet under the shadow of indifference and resignation.
