I would like to read a Turkish novel and wondered where to start? What are the "classics" of Turkish literature?

Thanks TT! I should have just MSN'd you and asked eh? hehe! I have read Orhan Pamuk but not Yasar Kemal. I was hoping to read something that is considered a "classic" - a MUST-READ of all Turkish literature. Any idea?

...as I understand it Yaşar Kemal is a must...at least in Sweden his books are the first you would get from a librarian if you asked for turkish literature...and after his books you would probably get the most famous author at the present...which would be Orhan Pamuk. But then again...this is just my narrowminded swedish perspective.

hey dear if u can find yasar kemal...his book INCE MEHMET my favourite and translated into more than 20 languages...im sure u can find it..it tell how turkish ppl feel ,how they behaves and what we have lives in the first years of republic..the conflict of the time between ottomans and republic...the most beautiful side of the book is that,it takes places in cukurova(adana,mersin,tarsus,ceyhan,seyhan,osmaniye)...great book....orhan pamuk? i never read him and i dont think i ll...bcos i tried few times and i have never seen such kind of wasted words in a sentence..he is just the media's hero...i read 1/4 of the book and it consist nothing...actually i also dont like him bcos he is a politic writer..a writer should be literal more than politic..he should enlighten us instead of pushing us into darkness....anyway..eanough?

sir Bihruz starts to live a luxurious and wasteful life after his fathers death..with his beautiful carriage he has short trips and meets with a very beautiful woman and he has some advetures that is hard to believe in this era with that woman...it makes great sense about how the western culture erouse the turkish culture..and how it changes slowly...an unelivable ,beautiful book that can u finish in one breath
