Description

This is the first edition of the popular Turkish novel Bir Avuç Saçma (A Bunch of Nonsense), first published in Ottoman language in Aleppo, during the author’s exile in the city. The text is
accompanied by attractive art-deco vignettes.

Refik Halit Karay (1888 – 1965) was an Ottoman / Turkish writer, teacher and journalist, who first lived in Anatolia for being the opponent of the Committee of Union and Progress and later escaped to Beirut and later to Aleppo for his opposing the Turkish War of Independence. He returned to Istanbul in 1938.

Halit Karay is known as a pioneer in Anatolian based literature.

The novel was translated to modern Turkish and is still popular today.
