Letters from Salonica
ISBN: 978-1-4632-0641-3
An English translation of the Letters from Salonica by Jelena Dimitrijevic, accompanied by a substantial critical introduction and a commentary. The book comprises author’s impressions from Salonica in the summer of 1908, in the midst of the Young Turk Revolution. The narrative focuses on the question of the “unveiling” of Muslim women, but also vividly portrays the vanished cityscape of Ottoman Salonica and gives accounts of the city’s Turkish, Jewish, Mu’min, and Greek communities.
