About This Book:

Title: Enlightenment


In the 1970s M was a member of radical leftist group in Istanbul and fell in love with a political filmmaker named Sinan, who left her to marry a woman named Jeannie. Thirty years later Jeannie calls on M for help--Sinan has been taken by The Department of Homeland Security on the Turkish border. Shortly later, Jeannie also disappears, and M is plunged back into Istanbul's shadowy world of activists, secret police, and CIA operatives. Maureen Freely has a deep and intimate knowledge of Turkey's convoluted political history, and her novel skillfully blends elements of the political thriller with her astute political and cultural observations.

Publisher Notes

Disappearing a few months after her Turkish husband is detained and her young son is placed in foster care by the U.S. Border Patrol, Jeannie Wakefield leaves behind a letter to an anonymous investigative journalist detailing the political factors that shaped her more than three-decade life in Turkey.

Industry Reviews

"ENLIGHTENMENT is a fluent, evocative and uncomfortable read, deliberately so....[It] is a story almost impossible to summarize but hard to forget....Freely is an almost perversely original writer, sharply observing the world she knows so well and upending all one's suppositions and assumptions....ENLIGHTENMENT may be too long and, at times, too opaque to win the audience it deserves, but it is a brave, unflinching work of art."
