Turkish author Cezmi ErsE[micro]z's 2001 book published in English.

ySTANBUL (CyHAN)- Famous Turkish poet and author Cezmi ErsE[micro]z's 2001 book "E[currency]izofren AE-ka Mektup" (literally "letter to a schizophrenic love") is now available for book lovers in English under the title "Confessions of a Love Come Undone."

Published this month by the ystanbul-based Ecitlembik Publications, the book was translated into English by Leyla TonguE* Basmacy.

The ystanbul-born ErsE[micro]z, 63, is among Turkey's most prolific and best-selling authors. His style, both in his poems and novels, is marked by a romantic but pessimistic outlook that often highlights the dark aspects of love and life.

Love and betrayal are the central themes in "Confessions of a Love Come Undone," a long-standing young-adult favorite among Turkish readers. The epistolary novel, set in modern-day ystanbul, follows the story of two lovers who are torn apart by their own mental demons.

The 144-page book is among works of Turkish literature that have been deemed worthy of support by the Ministry of Culture and Tourism as part of its long-running literary translation subvention program called TEDA. The paperback volume is priced TL 15. (Cihan/Todays Zaman) CyHAN
