About Orhan Kemal

Orhan Kemal (1914-1970) was one of Turkey's most popular novelists. He was found guilty for breach of the penal code during his military service, and served a prison sentence from 1938 to 1943. From 1951 he made his living entirely by writing - often with radical, anti-authoritarian content. His prison memoir, Nazim Hikmet'le A c Bucuk Yul (Three and a Half Years with Nazim Hikmet) was first published in Turkey in 1965. The Idle Years was published by Peter Owen in the UK in 2008.
