About this Item

SCARCE. Translated from Turkish by Thilda Kemal. Author's second book. "Each year when the wind brings the news to old Halil's keen senses that the cotton is ripe for picking in the Anatolian plain, the entire population of his remote village in the Taurus Mountains set out on the arduous trek to earn by their toil enough to buy the necessities of life for the bitter highland winter. Within this narrative, Yashar Kemal evokes the simple passions of the true folk novel and evidences why he is coNsidered the greatest living Turkish writer." 286 pp. DJ spine and edges age-tanned, a .75x.25" chip to top of DJ spine, two .5" closed tears to rear panel. Blue lettering to spine, yellow cloth-covered boards, blue topstain. Clean, bright, tight. NEAR FINE in Very Good Dustjacket. Bookseller Inventory # 66763
