A Tintoretto Of The Soul

Erol Engin

‘A Tintoretto of the Soul’ is a sardonic tale of sex, coffee and the more unsavoury side of literary life.



An author down on his luck is mistaken for a famous poet. He is asked to write a poem so moving that it will win a woman her ex-husband back.

Does he reveal his true identity or play along? What happens when the real poet turns up?
