Istanbul Noir presents stories from a city at once ancient and modern, Asian and European, postcard-perfect and simmering with rage.
AMY SPANGLER, a native of small-town Ohio, first landed in Turkey as a high school exchange student in 1994–95. She continued to foster her ties with the country and her keen interest in its literature throughout her college years, promptly moving to Istanbul upon graduation in 1999. She still lives in the elusive and amorphous Istanbul, where she works as translator, agent, and editor. She is the translator of Asli Erdogan’s novel, The City in Crimson Cloak, co-owner of AnatoliaLit Literary and Copyright Agency (www.anatolialit.com), and coeditor of Istanbul Noir.
