Resentment (2017)

Each novel by Nihan Kaya is also an anti-novel.

Resentment discusses and also challenges the genre of the novel through both its form and content. It incorporates the reader into the act of its own writing whilst being read.

The center of Resentment is not a character, not a theme, not a chain of events, not a unified understanding of time and geography. The center is the novel itself: Nothing is revolved around it, but we revolve around the novel as we are reading it and all our perceptions of fiction and reality are shaken.

Fragmented novel, just like life itself.
