Asli Perker’s bestselling third novel, Soufflé, has been translated into 23 languages, and was published in English by Telegram Books. The Daily Mail called it, “A funny, moving, clever book which examines the real meaning of family as it explores the true power of food. Delicious in every sense.”
Perker was born in Izmir, Turkey and graduated from Dokuz Eylul University, with a degree in American Studies. After a brief stint as an advertising copy writer, Perker turned to journalism. After relocating to New York in 2001, she wrote a weekly column titled “From New York” both for a daily national newspaper and a monthly women's magazine. Her first novel, The Scent of the Others, was published in 2005, and her second, Executioner’s Graveyard, followed in 2009, and was eventually translated into eight languages.
Perker’s fourth novel, Help Me, was released in September 2015 and her latest novel Fall came out in 2017. Perker has contributed to a couple of anthologies alongside the most prominent authors of Turkey. She continues to write cover stories for Milliyet Book Review and articles for Milliyet Art Magazine. She resides in Istanbul.
