Project #2: The Carpet Merchant of Konstantiniyya: Volume 1
What it's about: The Carpet Merchant by Reimena Yee is set in two eras -- 17th century Turkey and 18th century England -- and is a life epic about a carpet merchant couple, Zeynel and Ayse, with the focus on Zeynel. Volume I tells of his growth from a nervous, insecure youth to a happy settled man, then his unfortunate death and return as a vampire, forcing him and Ayse to grapple with the inevitability of leaving each other. Volume II finds Zeynel settling down in England, which presents him a set of challenges. Not only must he deal with the false, exoticised, Orientalist lens from the Europeans around him, he stumbles upon his vampiric murderer who has, apparently, come to him to seek forgiveness.
