The Center for Fiction Presents Ayşegül Savaş on The Anthropologists with Adam Dalva

The Center for Fiction welcomes Ayşegül Savaş, acclaimed author of Walking on the Ceiling and White on White, to discuss her latest work of fiction The Anthropologists. The novel follows Asya and Manu, a couple contemplating the life they want to build together as they go apartment hunting in a foreign city. Asya, a documentarian, films the daily life of the city as she immerses herself in local culture. Her journey with Manu is told through a series of apartment viewings and late-night conversations, as the couple examines their ever-expanding world. Evocative and soulful, the novel is “an acute portrait of the tender frequencies that make a life” (Raven Leilani, author of Luster). Joining Savaş in conversation is Adam Dalva, author of graphic novel Olivia Twist. The two will discuss The Anthropologists and Savaş’ intimate examination of homebuilding and modern love. After the conversation, Savaş will sign books.
