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.

Overview

How does an author build up his characters and set up his fiction? While our author who is unable to focus in his text is questioning all these, he finds himself in his own story when his lead protagonist comes knocking at his door. The interesting people he already knew from real life are all living in his story as extraordinary characters: Mathematician Mr. Mecnun; Doğan who is looking for his imaginary dog; Ms.Nigar with his travelling library; Şehrazat who is missing her mother, Mr. Muzaffer The Rooster, that wave coming at 6.44 pm and many more… Not only his protagonists but also the course of events would surprise our author who hears a loud cockcrow the day he sits at his desk to write.
