“As a person who haven’t seen any louse for almost forty years, I read Anne Kafamda Bit Var with enjoy and at the same time with a pain and heart break because of what he expressed. Tarık Akan expressed his life with a simple language, like he is talking to us. This book is a little bit late published, maybe because of this reason it is less sensitive, more rested and subjective as its last. But this book can also be a source for September 12.” (Kemal Gündüzalp).
