“Elif Shafak's Three Daughters of Eve depicts a sophisticated and compelling story of modern Istanbul. Peri is now a rich and glamorous woman living a comfortable life. While suffering through a tedious dinner party with the international elite, she ponders her days as a student at Oxford, when her life was profoundly impacted by two friends and a charismatic professor. As a young, unformed student, Peri felt lost in her search for faith and self. Looking back on these years from the perspective of adulthood, Peri must confront her past before it collides with the present. Compelling, poignant, and highly relevant, Three Daughters of Eve is a modern exploration of identity in a changing world.”

Winter 2018 Reading Group Indie Next List

“Unfolding in both contemporary Istanbul and Oxford during the academic year 2001–2002, Shafak’s compelling novel examines a series of dualities—east and west, men and women, religious and secular—in order to discover a more harmonious ‘third path.’ The protagonist, Peri, embodies this quest. Growing up in Turkey, she inhabited a limbo between her mother’s defiant religion and her father’s defiant materialism, and as a result has suffered bouts of paralyzing indecision—with tragic consequences.”
