Maggie: A Girl of the Streets

The Man from Turkey

Mauro Mevlud Martino – –

THE MAN FROM TURKEY lives inside the universal village within all of us that seek to find some sort of inner bliss: for those of us that wish to walk along all the streets of all the ‘New Yorks’ of the world that are strewn with rubbish that lives both within and without.

As Frank and Layla search for love, for commitment in the village of New York, in the village of their hearts, they encounter the likes of bloated Botero type characters oddly real and traveling as if in a blimp through the village… and, Hakim Luqman: the character that pinpricks the blimp into its soft landing into the world of Memo and Burcu… the ones who were not so bloated and blimp-like all along.

“Martino aims to illuminate men and women from within, to depict the conscious mind as the only expression of deeper human needs, the soul’s search for a more profound meaning in a spiritually arid world. He takes his reader on a mystical journey in a lifelike natural flow, which finally crystallizes in his ultimate message of the oneness of the human heart.” (Dr. Zeynep Apaydin, University of Marmara) Once again, Canadian-Italian-Turkish novelist Martino does what he does best. He exaggerates and bloats characters and settings into one big blimp overhead and slowly takes the air out of it until it lands softly in the place of that ONE HUMAN HEART.
