Writer:  Hasan Ali Toptaş
Life:  1958-
Born:  Denizli

Known for his skilful and imaginative use of language,Toptas is an important figure in Turkish postmodern literature. His blurring of reality and surreality have led to inevitable comparisons with Kafka. His novel Gölgesizler was made into a film of the same name. It was directed by Ümit Ünal, and Toptas also made a personal appearance in the film. The English translation of his novel, Heba, was published in 2013.
