Ayşe Kulin.. A contemporary Turkish author

Ayşe Kulin is one of the most prominent Turkish authors. Her books are very “INFORMATIVE” as well as entertaining .. Ms Kuılin has definitely a very loyal “portfolio of readers” after her success with beautiful novels such as “Her Name is AYLIN” and “SEVDALINKA” etc..

She graduated from the American College for Girls in Istanbul. For many years she worked in various sectors of the Turkish media. After some (long) trials she was successful and is now considered to be one of the most popular and beloved writers with a very fluent style. In hr books she  often takes us back to “old” Ottoman times. This we believe is a great way to help contribute to the culture of a young generation under the exposure of a very powerful culture erosion at our times.

Short story collections: Gunese Don Yuzunu (Turn Your Face to the Sun/1984), Foto Sabah Resimleri (Photographs by Foto Sabah — winner of the 1996 Sait Faik Short Story Award), Genis Zamanlar (Extended Times/1992). Kulin has written two widely acclaimed biographical novels and a novel entitled Sevdalinka (Love Songs). Her fourth novel Kopru (The Bridge) appeared in 2001
