"Turkey's top literary star at the [London Book] Fair is not, as you might expect, the Nobel Prize-winner of Orhan Pamuk - who is notably absent - but Elif Shafak. Shafak ... is, along with Pamuk, perhaps the only other Turkish author to truly command a broad English-speaking readership. Yet, considering Turkey's highly professional publishing industry and it's [sic
] geographic position at one of the flash points of world affairs, it's time for this to change."
