Publisher Comments:

Sheikh Nuruddin is a dervish at a Sarajevo monastery in the eighteenth century during the Turkish occupation. When his brother is arrested, he descends into the Kafkaesque world of the Turkish authorities in order to find out what has happened. As he does so, he begins to question his relations with society as a whole and, eventually, his life choices in general. Hugely successful when published in the 1960s, Death and the Dervish appears here in its first English translation.

Lyndsay, January 2, 2009 (view all comments by Lyndsay)
Eloquent, poetic and slowly rapturing. This tale of a man of the dervish order touches the very heart of human doubt, confusion and sensory experience. It paints a surreal world full of real people and problems. It is a story of each and every life. A stunning novel.
