Istanbul Was a Fairy Tale is a post-modern novel on a grand scale that follows three generations of an Istanbul Jewish family from the Ottoman Empire to the late 20th century. Istanbul is their only home, and yet they live in a state of alienation, isolating themselves from the world around them. Leading Turkish novelist Mario Levi came to Jewish Book Week to share the essence of Istanbul and its storied past.
