About the Author
Engin Geçtan is a practicing psychotherapist. He taught psychology at several universities in Ankara and Istanbul. Between the years 1975-1987, he wrote four psychiatry books that have a significant following outside professional readership: İnsan Olmak (Being Human), Varoluş ve Psikiyatri (Existence and Psychiatry), Normaldışı Davranışlar (Abnormal Behavior), Psikanaliz ve Sonrası (Psychoanalysis and After). Later Geçtan began working on novels and scenarios. His novels are Kırmızı Kitap (The Red Book); Dersaadet’te Dans (Dance in Dersaadet); Bir Günlük Yerim Kaldı İster misiniz? (I Have Space for One Day Only, Taking?); Kızarmış Palamutun Kokusu (The Smell of Fried Bonito) (The Smell of Fried Bonito) and Tren (The Train) (The Train). Drawing on his forty years of experience in psychiatry, he published Kimbilir? (Who Knows?) and Hayat (Life), books on psychiatry and contemporary life on the verge of chaos. His latest book Seyyar (Wanderer) is a thematic cross-edition of several different people’s interviews and conversations with Engin Geçtan.

Engin Geçtan
Dry Water

Kuru Su
Dry Water is a striking Istanbul novel taking place in December 2012, when the climate is upset. With his last novel based both on his practice as a psychiatrist and on life itself, Engin Geçtan is once again in the middle ground between the real and the fantastic. Against a set of familiar political developments, real life characters come together around an incident through the "net of fate," with the help of coincidences and personal choices, trying to feel alive in the middle of an oppressing chaos.
