Turkish Writer Kopan’s Book in Persian

The Persian translation of ‘Recipes of Loneliness from the Kitchen of Love,’ written by Turkish writer Yekta Kopan, 49, has been recently published by Ghatreh Publications in Tehran.
Fiction writer, essayist and translator Mojdeh Olfat, 50, translated the work originally written in Turkish, into Persian.
In 2002, the book also translated as ‘Recipes of Love and Solitude’ in English, won the Sait Faik Short Story Award, one of the most prestigious annual awards in Turkish literature to commemorate Turkish writer and poet Sait faik Abasiyanik (1906-1954).
The book is a collection of nine short stories on human relations.
Loneliness constitutes the main theme of the stories. Kopan sometimes takes a pause in story-telling and focuses on details and casual events. He portrays contemporary humans as being in a perpetual state of challenge with their inner and outer worlds, Alef news website (alef.ir) reported.
Kopan depicts this ever-changing human relationship. His narrations challenge the established preconceptions about friendship, family and love. He thus presents a new definition of human relations in a new age.
In addition to novels and short stories, Kopan has also written critical essays on cinema and literature. His short stories and essays have been published in various literary reviews, collections and anthologies.
