Latife Tekin

  • CountryTurkey
  • Born1957


Latife Tekin is one of the most influential Turkish female authors.

In 1983, her famous novel Sevgili Arsız Ölüm (Dear Shameless Death) was published. The magic realism in the book was drawn from the Anatolian folklore and traditions. Latife Tekin’s childhood in Kayseri, a multicultural city at a central point in Anatolia, influenced both her first book and the others in this aspect.
