Novel: The Aziz Bey Incident
Story writer and novelist Ayfer Tunç - is one of the most respected and widely read authors in Turkish literature - broke onto the literary scene with her first short story book, The Yore Hotel, which was highly praised by both the literary circles and readers. She started working as a journalist in 1989 and then as Editor-in-Chief at Yapı Kredi Publishing House between 1999-2004. Apart from her novels, she has also written many screenplays. Tunç’s work is concerned with virtues of being a lonely city dweller and a human being, with deep insight into the tribulations of living in contemporary Turkey. With her book My Parents Will Visit You If You Don’t Mind: Our Life, she won the international Balkanika Literary Award in 2003. The same year her screenplay Cloud in the Sky, inspired by Sait Faik’s short stories, was filmed and televised. The book was translated into six Balkan languages, along with the collection, The Aziz Bey Incident. The novels The Night of the Green Fairy and The Highly Unreliable Account of the History of a Madhouse remain her bestsellers. She has also co-authored a non-fiction study named Two Faced Sexuality with Oya Ayman.
