A mind at peace by Ahmet Hamdi Tanpınar ( Book )
10 editions published between 2007 and 2011 in English and held by 409 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Surviving the childhood trauma of his parents' untimely deaths in the early skirmishes of World War I, Mümtaz is raised and mentored in Istanbul by his cousin Ihsan and his cosmopolitan family of intellectuals. Having lived through the tumultuous cultural revolutions following the fall of the Ottoman Empire and the rise of the early Turkish Republic, each is challenged by the difficulties brought about by such rapid social change. Now in 1939, the promise of modernization and progress has given way to crippling anxiety rather than hope for the future. Mümtaz takes refuge in the fading past, immersing himself in literature and music, but when he falls in love with Nuran, a complex woman with demanding relations, he is forced to confront the challenges of the world at large. --Publisher
The Time Regulation Institute by Ahmet Hamdi Tanpınar ( Book )
4 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 153 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"A literary discovery: an uproarious tragicomedy of modernization, in its first-ever English translation. Perhaps the greatest Turkish novel of the twentieth century, being discovered around the world only now, more than fifty years after its first publication, The Time Regulation Institute is an antic, freewheeling send-up of the modern bureaucratic state. At its center is Hayri Irdal, an infectiously charming antihero who becomes entangled with an eccentric cast of characters-a television mystic, a pharmacist who dabbles in alchemy, a dignitary from the lost Ottoman Empire, a "clock whisperer"--At the Time Regulation Institute, a vast organization that employs a hilariously intricate system of fines for the purpose of changing all the clocks in Turkey to Western time. Recounted in sessions with his psychoanalyst, the story of Hayri Irdal's absurdist misadventures plays out as a brilliant allegory of the collision of tradition and modernity, of East and West, infused with a poignant blend of hope for the promise of modernity and nostalgia for a simpler time"--

Das Uhrenstellinstitut : Roman by Ahmet Hamdi Tanpınar ( Book )
4 editions published between 2008 and 2010 in German and held by 36 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Das Uhrenstellinstitut ist möglicherweise der bedeutendste türkische Roman des 20. Jahrhunderts, mit Sicherheit ist es der komischste. Der Antiheld Hayri hat mit seinem Freund Halit einen gigantischen und finanziell bestens ausgestatteten Verwaltungsapparat gegründet, der für die korrekte Einstellung sämtlicher Uhren im Land zu sorgen hat. Eine falsch gehende Uhr wird mit einem Bußgeld bestraft, Wiederholungstäter dürfen mit Rabatt rechnen. Durch einen Zufall kommt es schließlich zur Einsicht in die Überflüssigkeit des Instituts und zu dessen Schließung eine ständige Auflösungskommission, der alle wichtigen Mitarbeiter des Instituts angehören, bleibt natürlich bestehen. Tanpınar erzählt vom Übergang einer Gesellschaft von der alten in die neue Zeit mit satirischer Brillanz, überbordender Fabulierlust und einer großen Liebe zu den Figuren, über die er sich so hinreißend lustig macht
