THE PAGAN EATING PLACE

It is well known that poetry is Halil’s first love. In the rich examples of imagery found in virtually all his stories, he shows how  even while he is thinking and writing  stories he keeps his poetry channels open.

Prof.  Joseph S. Jacobson


In Turkish and many other languages one does not often come across a story teller who

by using such few words can express the essence of a thought so effectively.  With Ilyas Halil there can be no question of rambling, long explanations, pretence or artificiality, no unnecessary ostentation. He has given such importance to the purity of the words that he stays away from imitation. He is a writer who does not know what babbling is.

Prof. Talat S. Halman
