“Güney Dal has began with his literature career by using a social-realist perspective; and in his maturity years he was transformed into a “master of form” by using postmodern aesthetics. In his latest novel, Dal continues with his search for new forms. Zoom effects is established by the words “boxing” and “love”, with its trivial atmosphere and he builds them with the cultural values of 20s. He transforms his text into a “Zeitroman” that lies from the Ottoman spirit to technology fetishism.” (Yıldız Ecevit)
