In this study, Mehmet Eroglu’s “Kusma Kulübü” novel will be examined as an example of the September 12 coup d’etat novels in Turkish Literature which emerged after the defeat of the leftist movement. The main purpose of this study is the evaluation of Kusma Kulübü as a September 12 novel in the context of questioning and reconstruction of masculinity. September 12 novels, when selfquestionings, psychological crises and issues of personal identity merge with the role of gender relations in the fiction, become the narratives that can be examined in the context of construction of masculinity. Gender relations in the text will be evaluated as the area in which Umut, who is one of
the losers of the society, gains his self-confidence, independence, and empowerment. Accordingly, hegemonic hybrid masculinity forms will also be discussed. In the novel, the construction of the hybrid form of masculinity and its relationship with other forms of masculinity will also be examined. A different reading of the novel will be made about the strengthening of the main character by reconstructing his masculinity through the women with whom he is associated.
