Yaşar Kemal's unpublished novel on shelves after 40 years
Yaşar Kemal wrote 'Tek Kanatlı Bir Kuş' (A One-Winged Bird) in the 70s but decided not to send for publication. HÜRRİYET photoAn unpublished novel from the dean of Turkish literature, Yaşar Kemal, is set to hit the shelves nearly 40 years after it was written.
"Tek Kanatlı Bir Kuş" (A One-Winged Bird) will be published next week, and sees the internationally acclaimed author departing from his trademark naturalism, experimenting with fantastical elements.
Once more, Anatolia provides the setting, an environment very dear to the author of the classic "İnce Mehmed" series.
Kemal published his latest novel "Çıplak Deniz Çıplak Ada" (Naked Sea Naked Island) in October, the last installment of the "Island Story" tetralogy. In that series, he told tales of the exile of Greeks from Anatolia following the First World War.
