Derya What do you mean by that, Fadhilah? =)


message 2: by ehk2 (new)

ehk2 this list is so foreign-centric; Byzantium-focused. that is not to be bad in itself, but it lacks Ottoman and Turkish Republic era writers. Without Ahmet Hamdi, Sait Faik, Ahmet Rasim, Refik Halid, Abdulhak Sinasi, Mithat Cemil etc. this list is meaningless, tasteless and inferior.

Never in a million years would I thought of saying "meaningless, tasteless, and inferior" about a list that features a book written by Umberto Eco. Yet let's call it freedom of speech, and move on.

There are only 35 voters here, and most of them are not from Turkey, so they would not know as many Turkish authors unless we do something about it, right? I would like to see fans of Sait Faik's, too.

That being said, anybody, who wishes to participate, can add more books about and/or set in Istanbul/Byzantium/Constantinople.
