The Conductor of Illusions
by Metin Arditi, MBA '70, translated by Alison Anderson
Roaring Forties Press, May 2014

"The Conductor of Illusions" is a well-composed symphony of words. Arditi writes with compassion for his tormented character and we see the inner workings of not only Kandilis' career, but of his mind. We are left to wonder if we should be rooting for his success or demise. A scrupulously researched and complex story that keeps promises to keep you riveted.
