I wish they told me I wouldn't want to bother anyone. I also told the fair managers who were kind to remember me in the first step. If such high, friendly, subtle honoring will hurt others, I want to stay away from everything now. But how strangely I am back in my teenage teens. Here dear KadıköyI got acquainted with books and works that were my closest companions. They have become the meaning of my whole life. I thank the books now with tears. I apologize to you, who gave me this honor. Maybe it's a remembrance I don't deserve. On the other hand, it is a great pleasure for nearly 50 years of writing work. Good thing you are here.
