Turkish Delight

A new language for Janet Frame...

Janet Frame's work has been published in translation since the early 60s. (The first foreign edition was Owls Do Cry, into German.) But every now and then she attracts interest from publishers representing a 'new' language.

The Turkish publisher Yapi Kredi has signed an agreement for two titles: Janet Frame's first novel Owls Do Cry together with Towards Another Summer, her twelfth novel, which was published posthumously.

Yapi Kredi Publications is one of the biggest publishing houses in Turkey. Based in Istanbul and active since 1992, it has published over 2500 titles in philosophy, literature, the arts, and children's books.
