The Flea Palace

$13.040

By turns comic and tragic, Elif Shafak’s The Flea Palace is an outstandingly original novel driven by an overriding sense of social justice.

Bonbon Palace was once a stately apartment block in Istanbul. Now it is a sadly dilapidated home to ten wildly different individuals and their families.

There’s a womanizing, hard-drinking academic with a penchant for philosophy; a ‘clean freak’ and her lice-ridden daughter; a lapsed Jew in search of true love; and a charmingly naïve mistress whose shadowy past lurks in the building. When the garbage at Bonbon Palace is stolen, a mysterious sequence of events unfolds that result in a soul-searching quest for truth.

“An enchanting combination of compassion and cruelty . . . Elif Shafak is the best author to come out of Turkey in the last decade” – Orhan Pamuk

“Hyper-active and hilarious” – Independent
