Publisher Description:
Told through the voice of a canine narrator, Wüf is a surrealist wartime love story set in Turkey in the 1990s. The novel follows Mikasa, a street dog who recounts a tale of tragic wartime love at a kennel where he finds solace in storytelling and cigarettes. A book that took the Turkish literary world by storm, Kemal Varol's Wüf tackles universal themes of love and loss with both humor and pathos. Translated by PEN/Heim Award winner Dayla Rogers, the novel renders in English a one-of-a-kind love story with a narrator its readers won't soon forget. DAYLA ROGERS is a translator and educator based in Istanbul. In 2016 she received a finalist ribbon for Lunch Ticket's Gabo Translation Competition and in 2017 she received a PEN/HEIM Translation Fund Grant.
