Hasan Ali Toptaş (born 1958) is a prominent Turkish novelist and short story writer. He was born in Denizli, Turkey. His first short story book Bir Gülüşün Kimliği (The Identity of A Laughter) was published in 1987. An important Turkish scholar, Yıldız Ecevit nicknames him "a postmodern modernist" and calls him "a Kafka in Turkish literature", in her workTürk Romanında Postmodernist Açılımlar (The Postmodernist Expansion in Turkish Literature). In fact, Hasan Ali Toptaş's 1999 Cevdet Kudret Literature Award winner Bin Hüzünlü Haz is, on the one hand, a postmodern novella in terms of pluralism, metafiction and intertextuality. On the other hand it contains a lot of kafkaesque elements in terms of depicting an absurd, surreal and paradoxically mundane reality.
