“Ayse Papatya Bucak shares with Jhumpa Lahiri the gift of fusing distinctive subject matter with an unusually restrained and elegant voice. This marvelous debut collection is truly rare in its range and depth, its mastery of history and myth, and its fearless story-telling.” - Andrea Barrett, author of Archangel
“What a beautiful, wildly imagined book. The Trojan War Museum gives us stories with branching paths, and they resemble fairy tales, historical accounts, news reports, and dreams. This is fiction of great originality and great delight.” - Joan Silber, author of Improvement
“One of the best and most surprising collections I've read in a long time. This is a wonder cabinet of stories, each so singular and marvelous that I spent a long time after each, wanting to linger in the space it had created.” - Kelly Link, author of Get in Trouble
“A truly lovely, truly surprising book. Ayse Papatya Bucak's stories are narratively precise, and they are also beautiful vignettes on human culture, deftly probing the fissures and pressure points of history and bringing up new forms like the sponge divers in one of her stories. This collection absolutely glows with life.” - Lydia Kiesling, author of The Golden State
