  • [Kemal's] work, and, when all is said and done, his life, are injected with a burning humanism and a fierce belief in mankind's potential for good over evil. In showing a better way forward, shaping the lives of his characters with tolerance and understanding, Kemal's fiction occupies a moral plane far higher than that of human conflict and base revenge

  • He is the architect of unforgettable literary heroes and a beacon for writers of the generations that followed him

    Elif Shafak
  • The second part of the stirring Memed chronicle, by the man acknowledged to be Turkey's greatest contemporary writer
