As Americans celebrate Thanksgiving, we serve up the other Turkey. In addition to the fiction and poetry in this month's issue ("Before winter arrives you must hire a handsome assassin"), do help yourself to our all-Turkish issues. The first, "Women on the Verge of European Union," from December 2005, presents sparkling fiction and poetry by Asli Erdogan, Sebnem Isiguzel, Perihan Magden, Bejan Matur, Elif Shafak, and Letife Tekin; the return engagement, "Turkish Delights," from October 2008, showcases Erdogan, Seyhan Erözçelik, Müge Iplikçi, Küçük Iskender, Yasar Kemal, Birhan Keskin, Murathan Mungan, and Sevgi Soysal, plus a wide-ranging conversation between Claire Messud and Buket Uzuner.
