"Cayir gives us an original and fresh insight to understand the inner workings of Islamic narrative and its transformation from an ideological one in the 1980s to a self-reflexive one in the 1990s." - Nilufer Goele, Ecole des Hautes Etudes en Sciences Sociales, Paris
"Literature in Islam and its manifold faces is vast. However, Cayir skillfully discloses an unattended subject and identifies an unacknowledged transformation taking place in the Islamist ranks among those few writing Islamist novels in Turkey." - Yesim Arat, Department of Political Science and International Relations, Bogazici University, Istanbul
"Islamic Literature in Contemporary Turkey maintains excellent thoroughness and depth of approach. Placed alongside the publication of a number of recent books about Islamist politics, it stands out for its research, integration of theoretical and empirical material, intelligent and considered conclusions." - Christopher Houston, Macquarie University, Sydney
