    Shamelessly filthy and obscenely hilarious, Turkish Delight lays bare all the grotesque absurdity of life, death, love, and ego At once gruesome and tender, it s painfully believable from start to finish, and studded with snapshot moments of such startling imagery sometimes beautiful, sometimes disgusting, something both at once that they re bound to stick with you, long after you ve forgotten the characters or context Certainly not for the faint of heart or weak of stomach, but as compellin Shamelessly filthy and obscenely hilarious, Turkish Delight lays bare all the grotesque absurdity of life, death, love, and ego At once gruesome and tender, it s painfully believable from start to finish, and studded with snapshot moments of such startling imagery sometimes beautiful, sometimes disgusting, something both at once that they re bound to stick with you, long after you ve forgotten the characters or context Certainly not for the faint of heart or weak of stomach, but as compelling now as it must have been fifty years ago

    This book started out as a porn Today as I was reading the last chapter on the bus, I had to try really hard not to start crying tears were filling my eyes Never have I felt this much emotional connection with a book.

    The book is written almost entirely with exposition, which is common, I ve discovered with translated books There is very little dialogue However, its such a good book Full of raunchy humor and slang One of the best books I m read this year, and also ultimately it is so very sad It s interesting, different from many books, because its translated but it is so unique and full of melancholy and the regret we all feel when a relationship ends At first I thought the humor would kind of continue The book is written almost entirely with exposition, which is common, I ve discovered with translated books There is very little dialogue However, its such a good book Full of raunchy humor and slang One of the best books I m read this year, and also ultimately it is so very sad It s interesting, different from many books, because its translated but it is so unique and full of melancholy and the regret we all feel when a relationship ends At first I thought the humor would kind of continue but it got progressively darker until the end The ending was a little disappointing, because it seemed kind of flat in how it ended There was no emotion in the ending

    The story of a turbulent relationship between a young man and woman Most of the story is told as memories the guy has of specific moments in their relationship The majority of the book quite explicitly describes their sex life, but I was impressed with how their relationship shifted from lust to true care and concern It would be easy to write this off as a weird Dutch book from the 70s whose author is obsessed with sex, but some of the reoccurring themes made me think of it as something , The story of a turbulent relationship between a young man and woman Most of the story is told as memories the guy has of specific moments in their relationship The majority of the book quite explicitly describes their sex life, but I was impressed with how their relationship shifted from lust to true care and concern It would be easy to write this off as a weird Dutch book from the 70s whose author is obsessed with sex, but some of the reoccurring themes made me think of it as something , a la The Goldfinch or a Murakami novel

    Turks Fruit was originally published in 1969 It reads remarkably freshly still The novel recounts the ill fated, obsessive love affair between the narrator, a sculptor, and a beautiful red headed woman, Olga, who comes from a wealthy if dysfunctional family Its sexual explicitness, at times from an entitled seeming male perspective, can induce certain qualms in the modern reader, and in one or two places real queasiness it s a novel of its time But it is also rawly honest and graphic in its Turks Fruit was originally published in 1969 It reads remarkably freshly still The novel recounts the ill fated, obsessive love affair between the narrator, a sculptor, and a beautiful red headed woman, Olga, who comes from a wealthy if dysfunctional family Its sexual explicitness, at times from an entitled seeming male perspective, can induce certain qualms in the modern reader, and in one or two places real queasiness it s a novel of its time But it is also rawly honest and graphic in its depiction, in earthy language, of lust and sex and bodily fluids in all their embarrassing and often amusing messiness Not all is pure romantic passion In addition, it conveys not only the narrator s sexual urges, but Olga s too, granting her sexual autonomy and desire in a way that I imagine was still rather rare at the time The story starts with the narrator s desolation over Olga s abandonment of him, for no apparent good reason, for some dull business contact of her parents It cycles back to the beginning of the relationship, through its highs and lows, to its breakup, and to the affectingly sad aftermath Along the way its narrator manages to drop his air of a young man on the frenetic hunt for sexual experience in the newly liberated sixties, and becomeshuman, grieving He is constantly reminded of apparently insubstantial episodes from their life together often involving tenderness towards the stray animals that cross their path a duck, a seagull Turks Fruit is, finally, the story of a man deeply marked by a love that survives his beloved s loss of her youth and beauty A flawed novel, but a powerful and engaging one with considerable emotional heft An English version was published in 2017 as Turkish Delight, trans Sam Garrett

    A raw depiction of a time and a place and a mindset that s grimly, provocatively fascinating to observe and leaves you feeling unclean in its wake While also being sexy and funny and full of grotesque imagery That our narrator is so difficult to like despite an invigoratingly stark way with words makes his self pitying journey of visceral sexual carnage towards a redemption of sorts all theinteresting Troubling and sweet in its depiction of unharnessed masculinity in the face of roman A raw depiction of a time and a place and a mindset that s grimly, provocatively fascinating to observe and leaves you feeling unclean in its wake While also being sexy and funny and full of grotesque imagery That our narrator is so difficult to like despite an invigoratingly stark way with words makes his self pitying journey of visceral sexual carnage towards a redemption of sorts all theinteresting Troubling and sweet in its depiction of unharnessed masculinity in the face of romantic breakdown toxic, but tender
