What are your favourite Turkisk writers?

 

 

I´m looking for something to read, the topics are not that important.

 

So far I´ve just read Orhan Pamuk´s works and Ince Mehmet by Yaþar Kemal (which I did not appreciate at all - is he a masochist or something?)

Adalet Agaoglu (Bir Dügün Gecesi -my all time favorite-,Yazsonu,Hayir)
Firuzan (kirkyedililer, her book of short stories)
Vedat Turkali (Mavi Karanlik, Bir Gün Tek Basina)
Latife Tekin (Berci Kristin Çöp Masallari)

Orhan Pamuk (kar, masumiyet muzesi-this is a fantastic book actually)

I just read "Bir Kadýn Düþmaný" by Reþat Nuri Güntekin, it was a very nice and different book, especially the kind of book women would like. There are a lot of old turkish words in the book, but a dictionary at the end of the book exists. I don´t know if it was translated in english.

As we cannot modify, I´m adding it here. I recommended rather a book although you asked for writers, but take it as a recommandation for Reþat Nuri Güntekin, since he´s a well known good writer. His style in his books is simple and he make observations of the typical turkish people, and their relationships. There are a lot of dialogs in his books. As he has travelled a lot because of his job in Anatolia, he knows well anatolian people, because he lived in the begining of the 1900s, he uses a lot of old turkish words (arabic origined), some would find it boring, if it´s not a simplified book, but it does not restrain you from understanding the story, and you can learn new words.

You might also like Elif Shafak (Þafak?), she´s translated into English, I´m reading "The Bastard of Istanbul" right now and quite enjoying it.
