Internationally acclaimed Turkish journalist and author Ece Temelkuran, met with her London based readers through a special book reading event in conjunction with Waterstones Trafalgar Square, introducing her recent book “Women Who Blow on Knots”.

A phenomenon in Turkey with more than 120,000 copies sold, Women who Blow on Knots chronicles a voyage reaching from Tunisia to Lebanon, taken by three young women and septuagenarian Madam Lilla. Although the three young women embark on the road for different reasons – for each holds a dark secret – it is only at the journey’s point of no return that Lilla’s own murderous motivations for the trip become clear.

Unique and controversial in its country of origin for its political rhetoric and strong, atypically Muslim female characters, Temelkuran weaves an empowering tale that challenges us to ponder not only the social questions of politics, religion and women in the Middle East, but also the universal bonds of sister- and motherhood. Ultimately, the novel begs the reader to mediate on the greatest problem women face today.

WRITING FICTION AS A JOURNALIST

Talking about the book, Temelkuran explained the reasons why she chose to write fiction, by mystifying the fact that in reality, the plot was taken from her own experiences back when she was in Tunisia and yet she felt like expressing a story in which she did dwell.

“I loved being the narrator of this book but I can’t really say what the fiction is and what is not in this book – as a journalist I just enjoyed the process of writing fiction but also writing about my stories.”

Answering the questions of the audience, Miss Temelkuran then signed copies of her new book by also taking questions and comments in person.
