Something Funny to Write About is a collection of thirteen short stories set in modern Turkey by acclaimed Turkish author Deniz Kavukçuoğlu. The cast of characters includes Turks, Armenians, Greeks and Kurds, among them an Armenian barber who uses a pomegranate to give his neighbour a lesson in inter-community relations, a Greek woman who finds—but is not reunited with—the daughter she thought was dead, and a man who inadvertently helps someone finish a report by falling out of a window. The title story is about a career diplomat who has promised to write something funny for a child and spends a long time searching for something among the humourless incidents of his life until he comes to the bittersweet realisation that his whole life has been one big comedy.

Age range: 16+
