THE 6.44pm WAVE

What does an author do when his protagonists come knocking at his door?

Behiç Ak added a new one to his children’s novels which are masterly illustrated also by him, reflecting the rich inner worlds, questionings and curiosity of children. He blended the intellectual world of an author, his imagination power and his relationship with his environment in an extraordinary fiction. Original characters who are more interesting than each other and unique stories accompany “Author’s Voyage” which extends from his room to his neighbourhood, from a city to a village, from a village to the life in a forest. Master author Ak, who says that “Children also have an intellectual world.” is this time presenting a creative writing adventure which makes his readers to deeply feel the meaning of life. Turkey’s 2021 ALMA (Astrid Lindgren Memorial Award) nominee Behiç Ak, wanders along the borders of imagination in his new novel.
