A Strange Woman is the story of Nermin, a young woman who aspires to be an intellectual in an oppressive social environment. The four subsections of the novel, entitled, consecutively, “The Girl”, the “The Father”, “The Mother”, and “The Woman”, narrate the struggle and quasi-enlightenment of Nermin through the viewpoints of the main characters involved. This rebellious, avant-garde novel tackles sexuality, the unconscious, and psychoanalysis, all through the lens of a modernizing 20th-century Turkey.
