The old house in a seaside village where she has spent her adult life a frail ninety year old widow awaits the annual visit of her three grandchildren overweight alcoholic Faruk a professor obsessed with history his stylish left leaning younger sister Nilg n and materialistic self absorbed college student Metin who is saving his money to go to America and become a captain of industry The dwarf Recep now a faithful servant to the grandmother is in fact her husband s illegitimate son crippled due to her treatment of him as a child Teen aged Hasan is the son of Recep s bastard brother and a member of a thuggish nationalist gang The overall mood is one of dissatisfaction bitterness and decayEach chapter is an intimate in many cases disturbing peek into the mind of one of the characters grandmother Fatma Faruk Recep Metin and Hasan but not interestingly Nilg n These first person narratives come close to stream of consciousness They portray the ebb and flow of emotion the irrationality of thought the occasionally overwhelming physical sensation The effect in each case is one of intense isolation which becomes oppressive as the book proceeds towards its shocking and violent conclusionI particularly appreciated the depiction of Fatma s inner life She is not suffering from dementia but she experiences the objects in her environment and especially the passage of time in an almost hallucinatory manner I found her mental wanderings totally convincing It s plausible to me that when one eaches such an advanced age so called eality might begin to waverHowever these distinctive vivid characters are not the author s deepest concern Fundamentally I believe Silent House is a book about perception memory and history The book was published on the eve of a nationalist coup I don t know enough about Turkish history to appreciate the specific eferences but the messages are universal Pamuk s characters share a loss of connection to the past a distrust of the present and a sense of inferiority that leads them to actions they know are wrong but which they cannot esistI was surprised that this author s early work shows none of the typical optimism of youth Silent House turned out to be far darker than I expected More than once I considered putting the book down without finishing it I m glad I didn t yield to my discomfort That s part of the point of this novel. Emories and grievances of those early years But it is Recep's cousin Hassan a high school dropout and fervent ight wing nationalist who will draw the visiting family into the growing political cataclysm in this spell binding novel depicting Turkey's tumultuous century long struggle for modernityTranslated by Robert Finn.
