About Neslihan Stamboli

Neslihan Stamboli is Turkish and Hungarian by birth, Italian by heart and English by formation. Her love of letters was not love at first sight. It took her a degree in finance, a brief career in banking, another degree in French Literature from the University of London and an attempt to study psychology, together with years of translation (and with three marriages and a daughter into the bargain) before she wrote her first book. "White," portraying a contemporary psychological approach to Samkhya philosophy, was published in 2007. "Ruya," an epic novel, followed suit in three volumes: "Broken Rhapsody," "A Retake on War" and "Csardas."show more
