My mother taught me purple
Songs My Mother Never Taught Me by Selcuk AltunAfter the death of his overbearing mother, the privileged Arda reclines in his wealth, reflecting on his young life, and on the life of his father, the famous mathematician Mursel Ergenekon, who was murdered on Ardas fourteenth birthday. While on the other side of the city ‘your humble servant’ Bedirhan has decided to pack in his ten-year career as an assassin.
Their two lives become intrinsically bound in this remarkable thriller that takes us through the streets of Istanbul. We learn that Bedirhan in fact killed Ardas father, and that they share more in common than he or we could imagine.
Meanwhile, Selcuk Altun, a former family friend, is playing a deadly game, providing Arda with clues to track down his fathers killer.
Selcuk Altun was born in Artvin, Turkey in 1950. He lives in Istanbul and is a retired banking executive and bibliophile.

My mother taught me golden And held me up to see it, Above the broken molding, Beyond the filthy street. My mother reached for beauty And for its lack she died, Who knew so much of duty She could not teach me pride. This is an example of the poem: My mother taught me purple Although she never wore it.
