Brand new in paperback, Orhan’s Inheritance is one of our top selections on our Book Club Calendar 2016. The novel begins when Orhan’s eccentric grandfather, who built a dynasty out of making kilim rugs, is found dead, submerged in a vat of dye. Orhan inherits the decades-old business in Turkey, but his grandfather has left the family estate to a stranger thousands of miles away, Seda, an aging woman who lives in Los Angeles. Intent on righting this injustice, Orhan travels to Los Angeles to find Seda, and ends up unearthing a story that, if told, has the power to unravel his own future.
Moving from the last years of the Ottoman Empire to the 1990s, Orhan’s Inheritance is a tale of passionate love, unspeakable horrors, incredible resilience, and the hidden stories that haunt a family. The New York Times Book Review called Ohanesian’s novel “a book with a mission, giving a voice to history’s silent victims.”
So if your book club is searching for its next pick, look no further than Orhan’s Inheritance, the book Elle calls “rich, tragic, compelling, and realized with deep care and insight.”
