Book Review: Ahmet Hamdi Tanpinar's The Time Regulation Institute

      ‘But surely, reverend father,’ said Candide, ‘there is a great deal of evil in the world.’
      ‘And what if there is?’ said the dervish. ‘When His Highness sends a ship to Egypt, do you suppose he worries whether the ship’s mice are comfortable or not?’
      ‘What ought to be done, then?’ said Pangloss.
      ‘Keep your mouth shut!’ said the dervish.
—Voltaire, Candide: Or Optimism, 1758, translated by Theo Cuffe.
