Multi-author Book on Istanbul Explores the City

A new book titled “Istanbul in World Literature,” once again reveals how Istanbul has attracted thousands of world-renowned writers through the years.

The book, which is published by the Library and Publishing General Management Foundation, reveals the cultural heritage of Istanbul while also presenting the comments and writings of writers who visited Istanbul and wrote about the city.
