'Sumptuous, surprising and profound' ----Orhan Pamuk
'Played out against a backdrop of a country in turmoil, grappling with new-found freedoms and entry into the modern world, Madam Atatürk offers a fascinating insight into the power dynamics between a forthright, Western-educated woman and a charismatic, stubborn man. While Kemal prevailed, Latife played a pivotal role in shaping the new Turkey and acknowledgement of her contribution is long overdue.' Four Stars --New Internationalist
'This fascinating retelling of Latife's life celebrates a woman who campaigned courageously for equal rights, highlighting an important moment in the struggle for women s suffrage. While previous censorship of her true story points to a life lived in the shadow of her husband, this book offers a poignant reminder of the lengths she went to in order to be heard.' --The Lady
'A daring biography' --Independent
'A meticulously researched and unique account of the life and times of an exceptional woman.' --Moris Farhi
