From the widely acclaimed author of Waiting for Eden: a stirring, timely new novel that unfolds over the course of a single day in Istanbul: the story of an American woman attempting to leave behind her life in Turkey--to leave without her husband. Catherine has been married for many years to Murat, an influential Turkish real estate developer, and they have a young son together, William. But when she decides to leave her marriage and return home to the United States with William and her photographer lover, Murat determines to take a stand. He enlists the help of an American diplomat to prevent his wife and child from leaving the country--but, by inviting this scrutiny into their private lives, Murat becomes only further enmeshed in a web of deception and corruption. As the hidden architecture of these relationships is gradually exposed, we learn the true nature of a cast of struggling artists, wealthy businessmen, expats, spies, a child pulled in different directions by his parents, and, ultimately, a society in crisis. Riveting and unforgettably perceptive, Red Dress in Black and White is a novel of personal and political intrigue that casts light into the shadowy corners of a nation on the brink.Binding Type: HardcoverAuthor: Elliot AckermanPublisher: Knopf Publishing GroupPublished: 05/26/2020ISBN: 9780525521815Pages: 288Weight: 1.30lbsSize: 9.40h x 6.50w x 1.20dReview Citations: Library Journal Prepub Alert 12/01/2019 pg. 55Publishers Weekly 03/09/2020Kirkus Reviews 03/15/2020Booklist 04/01/2020 pg. 20Library Journal 04/01/2020 pg. 82
