Summary Written from behind bars, DAWN is the unforgettable story collection from one of Turkey's leading politicians, and most powerful oppositional voices. From the dynamic political force 'who has evoked comparisons to President Obama' ( New York Times ), Selahattin Demirtaş' stories capture the voices of ordinary people living in extraordinary times - from cleaning ladies and teenage laborers, bus drivers and factory workers, from a violent demonstration in Ankara to a five-year-old girl's attempt to escape war-torn Syria by boat. With Demirtaş' trademark wit, warmth and humor, and seasoned by the vernacular of everyday speech, DAWN paints a remarkable portrait of life behind the headlines in Turkey and the Middle East - in all its hardship and adversity, freedom and hope.
