Small Town and Lies
Can Publishing House, 2001

The voice of the provinces… The voice of women… The voice of the women who live in the provinces… In Small Town Lies, Gönül Kıvılcım looks at the life in the country from the shores of childhood. With a strong visual language, the stories reflect the scents, the colors, and even the folk songs of Anatolia. The stories vividly depict the world of children, women, pigeon-lovers, and the world of a small town’s crazy people and take both the heroes of the book and the readers on a long journey… to an inner journey. The route of this journey sometimes passes by the family home, sometimes by the primary school of the town… Looking back to the past, Gönül Kıvılcım strives to understand life: “a life that is crammed into small town houses.”
