Orhan Kemal (1914–1970) was one of Turkey’s best-loved novelists. He served a prison sentence from 1938 to 1943. From 1951 he made his living entirely by writing novels – often with radical, anti-authoritarian content. His prison memoir, Nazım Hikmet’le Üç Buçuk Yıl (Three and a Half Years with Nazım Hikmet) was first published in Turkey in 1965.
