The sad and humorous story, told by the famous Turkish satirist, of his exile in Bursa after release from jail for writing a brochure critical of his government’s acceptance of U.S. aid. Nesin arrives in Bursa, a resort town famous for its hot springs, and patriotically marches the length of Main Street between his two gendarme guards. He describes without omission, confesses in detail, his hilarious and heart-rending experiences during his forced exile.

Aziz Nesin, Turkey’s greatest satirist and “Devils Advocate” of the post Ottoman Turkish Republic government, has spent more than five years as a political convict in Turkish jails. Most of his dozens of books sold out quickly (in as many as 27 languages) and appeared in several editions. Southmoor Studios enthusiastically chose Memoirs Of An Exile for its second Nesin presentation to the West (our first was Dog Tails, late 2000, also at Amazon.com) where discriminating readers can again enjoy Aziz Nesin’s great talent.From the Author:
My friend, Aziz Nesin, who died in 1995 at the age of 80, once wrote me, “Why would you want to translate my biography and publish it for readers who have never read my stories?” The answer is that his biography in itself is a great story.--Joseph S. Jacobson, Professor Emeritus
