Sleeping in the forest: Stories and Poems (Translated from the Turkish)

£8.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

Sait Faik may well be named 'the Turkish Chekhov.' In Turkey, critics and readers regard him as their finest short story writer. Since his death in 1954 at the age of forty-eight, his stature has grown on the strength of his narrative art, which is both realistic and whimsical with a poetic touch. Süha Oğuzertem, a premier authority on Turkish fiction, writes in his introduction to 'Sleeping in the Forest' that "As an anti-bourgeois writer and fierce democrat, Sait Faik has always sided with the underdog and that no characters remain 'common' or 'ordinary' once they enter Sait Faik's stories; his piercing gaze and thoughtful vision transform them lovingly into unique beings." Sait Faik's fiction ranges from the realistic to the surrealistic, from the romantic to the modern, from the cynical to the compassionate.
These short stories have been translated from the Turkish into English.

Published 2004.

Paperback. Front cover slightly dogeared. Otherwise this volume is in very good condition.
