Aviana Publishing House published Hakan Yaman’s novel, “The Woman in the Photograph” in Bulgarian. The same publishing house published Yaman’s “FallScented Sins” for a while ago.
“The Woman in the Photograph” is the voice records of its protagonist Suphi. Suphi is one of the grandsons of those “useless men” who we often find in the world literature. He is living with his mother in Istanbul. He works as an accountant in a small company. He is an amateur photographer and he carries his solitude on his back like a heavy burden. We are listening his adventure of seeking the woman who he loses after he takes her photograph by coincidence.
Suphi falls in love with her just after he takes her picture. He explains everything recklessly, leisurely to us as if he confesses his sins. He goes in too deep, as far as to his childhood; he narrates by scratching his wounds remained in the hazy days of his childhood, he narrates even by making them bleed.
