Turkish writer Sabahattin Ali makes the melancholy beautiful in this gem of a book, ‘Madonna in a Fur Coat.’ Although the overarching plot of the novel was somewhat predictable, I think sometimes the soul yearns for a love story of such desperation and anguish as contained in this short book. For reasons I can’t understand, reading about the pain of missed opportunities and wasted years can be soothing and rewarding, and leave you wanting more. . This book relates the story of love found and love lost between a young man and a young woman in Berlin in the 1920s. Sounds simple, but where this novel excels (as so many do) is in the telling. It’s no usual forlorn love story, as it is told by one man to another in his diary. The first few chapters relate how the narrator met his unusual colleague Raif Efendi, and then the bulk of the book is Raif’s notebook as read by the narrator after his friend’s death. Although at first I was cynical (typical me), I later realised how clever and effective this extra narrative layer was: 1) increasing the distance between Raif’s story and the reader emphasises the melancholy of his tale, as it becomes a sort of time capsule of one man’s love; 2) we the reader know that Raif has already died, which adds to the tragedy of his experience; and 3) he wrote it all down in his notebook one day because it was too painful to tell it to anyone else, not even to us, the reader, as an omniscient narrator would. And this leaves me with plenty of food for thought. . Looking into the author’s own life a little, it was also tremendously tragic. Sabahattin Ali was imprisoned twice for his political views (once for writing a poem) and was killed at 41 on the Bulgarian border. I wonder if the love story in this book was drawn from his own experience at all. . Generally I thought this book was a quiet gem, and thank @elifthereader for recommending it to me while on a bookstagram shopping trip a few months ago!

glenjenreads Great review Charlotte! This sounds like a really good read.

💫Bir ruh, ancak bir benzerini bulduğu zaman ve bize, bizim aklımıza, hesaplarımıza danışmaya lüzum bile görmeden, meydana çıkıyordu... Biz ancak o zaman sahiden yaşamaya, -ruhumuzla yaşamaya- başlıyorduk💫 . 📌İnsan, həqiqətən, qəribə varlıqdır...insan nə istədiyini bilmir, daim axtarışdadır...çox zaman nə axtardığını, nəyə ehtiyacı olduğunu belə bilmir... "Kürk mantolu Madonna" məndə çox qəribə bir təəssürat yaratmışdı: eyni zamanda bir əsəri həm sevib, həm "sevməmək" necə ola bilər axı?! 💕Sevdim- ona görə ki, Raif bəyin saf sevgisi hər bir xanımın xəyallarındakı kimi bir sevgi idi, o, bütün qəlbini öz kürk paltolu Madonnasına verməyə hazır idi, qarşılıqsız olsa belə... 💔"Sevmədim"- insan qəlbinin bu qədər qaranlıq və gizli sirlərlə dolu olması həqiqəti üzümə çırpıldı, yaşadığımız dünyanın, ətrafın bizi olduğumuz kimi deyil, olmadığımız biri kimi davranmağa məcbur etməsi həqiqəti üzümə çırpıldı...İnsan belə bir varlıq deyilmi?! Həqiqətdən ölənədək qaçmağı, onunla bircə dəfə də olsa, üzləşməkdən üstün tutarıq...mən də insanam, ona görə "sevə bilmədim", Raif bəy! Buna görə səndən üzr istəyirəm... . 💫"İçimde insanlara karşı öyle bir itimatsızlık, öyle bir acılık peyda olmuştu ki, bundan zaman zaman kendim de korkuyordum"💫 . "Qorxu" və "sevgi" kəlmələri yanaşı işlənməyəcək qədər bir-birindən uzaqdır. Həyat qısadır və o bir nöqtədə dayanıb nə zaman sizin cəsarətlənəcəyinizi gözləməyəcək qədər səbirsizdir... . 💫"Kadın sevebileceği zaman sevmiyor, ancak tatmin edilmeyen arzulara üzülüyor, kırılan benliğini tamir etmek istiyor, kaybedilen fırsatlara yanıyor ve bunlar ona aşk çehresi altında görünüyordu"💫 . 📌Bu əsər barəsində fikirlərim o qədər pərakəndə halda idi ki, müəyyən hissəsini sizə çatdırmağa çalışdım... 💕Sevgiylə və kitabla qalın!📚 . . .#sabahattinali #kurkmantolumadonna #bookpost #bookblogger #kitapanalizi #realreader #bookquotes #reading #currentlyreading #turkedebiyati #içimizdekişeytan #madonnainafurcoat #books #bookstagram #book

Saw this sign at the revamped tiny cafe in a park near my work. Would love to find Americanah and Swing Time! Any thoughts on this lineup? And has anyone read Madonna in a Fur Coat or Oreo? #cafe #sign #freebooks #Americanah #madonnainafurcoat #bookstagram #bookish #lovereading #books #bookstagrammers

"Affetsen, affetmem; yuzunu gormemisim, sesini duymamis, hic tanismamisim (...) Bu yuzden bahsetmem; sevilmemisiz belli, degerli olmamis, sayilmamisiz bilhassa". . . 👠Bence "Kurk Mantolu Madonna"nin sahne uyarlamasinin en iyi kismi sondaki Sezen Aksu-Veda'ydi. Ben tum oyun sabit durdum, bu sarkida döküldüm resmen. Yanimdaki tanimadigim kiz da agliyor, agladikca da iyice sinirim bozuldu, biz boyle fenalastik yan yana 😂 . . 👠Ben uyarlamayi izlemede biraz gec kaldim cunku hic acele etmedim. Cunku eserin hep fazla abartildigini dusundum. (Sabahattin Ali'nin dil ve anlatimina asigimdir o ayri) Ancak bu hikaye fazla dramatik gelir hep bana. . . 👠Kitabin Ingilizce baskisinin posterlerine 2017 kışında, Londra metrosunda rast gelip cok tuhaf gururlanmistim. Boyle bir aglayasim gelmisti bir basima orada. (Bkz: Elif Safak, Orhan Pamuk kitaplarinin Ingilizce baskilarina alakasiz bir ufak Ingiliz kitapevinde rastlamak.) Daha o zaman oyun adaptasyonu falan yok. Simdi oyuna nihayet gidince de bu kareyi paylasmamak olmazdi o ana gidip. - - 👠Eseri hala okumadiysaniz mutlaka okuyun, (bu denli populer olmasi sizi sogutmasin sakin) oyuna denk gelirse gidin. Hani oyle bir denge.

“...But while that face was utterly new to me, I couldn’t help but feel that I had seen her many times before. Surely I knew this pale face, this dark brown hair, this dark brow, these dark eyes that spoke of eternal anguish and resolve. I had known that woman since I’d opened my first book at the age of seven-since I’d started at the age of five , to dream. I saw her echoes of Halit Ziya Uşaklıgil’s Nihal, Vecihi Bey’s Mehcure, and Cavalier Buridan’s beloved. I saw the Cleopatra I had come to know in history books, and Muhammad’s mother, Amine Hatun, of whom I had dreamed while listening to the Mevlit prayers...” Sabahattin Ali- Madonna In a Fur Coat #sabahattinali #madonnainafurcoat #kürkmantolumadonna #turkishliterature #universityofsussex #brighton

She searched my face. ‘You are alone in Berlin, right?’ ‘What do you mean?’ ‘I mean...alone... with no one else...spiritually alone...How can I put it...you have an air about you that...’ ‘I understand...I am completely alone...But not just in Berlin...alone in all of the world...since I was child...’ ‘Me too,’ she said. This time she took my hands in hers. ‘So alone sometimes I feel like I can’t breathe...as lonely as a sick dog.’ Sabahattin Ali-Madonna in a Fur Coat #madonnainafurcoat #kurkmantolumadonna #sabahattinali #turkishliterature #brighton #universityofsussex #uk

"Şimdiye kadar tesadüf ettiğim insanlardan bir tanesi benim üzerimde belki en büyük tesiri yapmıştır. Aradan aylar geçtiği halde bir türlü bu tesirden kurtulamadım." diye başlıyordu Sabahattin Ali'nin şaheseri "Kürk Mantolu Madonna". Bu klasiğin Penguen Yayınlarından çıkan İngilizce çevirisininin yeni edisyonunda gerçekten çok güzel bir kapak tasarımı kullanmış. Erkek karakterin ikinci karede dalıp, yitip gidişi bana gerçekten Raif Efendiyi anımsatıyor. Sıradan bir adamın sıradışı geçmişi. #KürkMantoluMadonna #madonnainafurcoat #SabahattinAli #RaifEfendi #penguinbooks #Roman #Novel #TürkEdebiyatı #Ordinarymansextraordinarypast #Kitapkapağı #bookcoverdesign #MaureenFreely #AlexanderDawe

Lately I’ve just been reading sad books in my hermit cave. 😂 Taking these back to the library today. I read “Madonna In A Fur Coat” in just a couple of sittings & would highly recommend it to anyone who wants to read a weird old book about a tragic romance in 1920s Berlin. I am hesitant to recommend “The Lonely Hearts Hotel” because the first 100 pages are honestly pretty brutal content-wise, but I ended up really enjoying that one too. It is a tragic romance set in the 1930s (involving an unexpected amount of clowns & gangsters). #books #reading #madonnainafurcoat #thelonelyheartshotel

musicnovellife I loved the Lonely Hearts Hotel. I am going to take you up on Madonna in a Fur Coat. Always glad to try a new read.

laurenplayspiano @musicandnovels Lonely Hearts Hotel is the first Heather O’Neill book I’ve read & now I want to check out the others. And I hope you like Madonna In A Fur Coat! It’s a cool little book.

.⁣⁣⁣ Madonna in a Fur Coat by Sabahattin Ali tells a story about Raif, an ordinary man whose presence is often unnoticed. He is described as a dedicated employee (a German-Turkish translator) but not ambitious nor social. He is treated poorly at work by his boss and at home by his family but he never defends himself.⁣ ⁣ He is quiet, affectless and distant. Or as Ali describes:⁣⁣⁣⁣ "the sort of man who causes us to ask ourself: 'What do they live for? What do they find in life? What logic compels them to keep breathing?'"⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣ One evening, when Raif falls sick, his new colleague visits him at his home and the story unfolds when Raif gives his notebook to him.⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣ The notebook takes us back to 1920's where Raif was sent to Berlin by his father to learn about soap manufacturing business. There he meets a talented painter and falls in love.⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣ "Perhaps she'd been all I needed. I suppose that is what any of us need: one single person." ⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣ Over the months, the two form such an intense relationship. Something that showered Raif with much happiness it changed him.⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣ "All my life, I'd been silent. Whenever I'd been tempted to speak, I'd quickly changed my mind. 'Why bother?' I'd say to myself. 'What difference will it make if you speak?' In the past, I'd been just as quick to let emotion get in the way - to decide, on slim evidence, that a certain person could never understand me. But this time, my first impressions stood fast: she would understand me perfectly."⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣ Unfortunately the world has another plan for them. They must part ways and never reunite.⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣ Through this book, I can say that Sabahattin Ali is a great story teller. He dramatizes a doomed relationship in a beautiful way that it didn't feel graceless. In fact, it is a masterpiece. There are many beautiful passages that make me contemplate about relationship, family, and life in general.⁣⁣⁣ ⁣ “Life is a game that is only played once, and I lost.”⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣ #bookstagram #sabahattinali #madonnainafurcoat #turkishliterature #books #bookreview #translation #bookworm #culturetripbooks #readingtheworld #lovestory #booksofinstagram
