Sennur Sezer, Varlık
Crossing fates, lost dreams and lives blown around by the wind. The awarded novel “Backyard of Heaven” was already translated into German and Greek. The story is narrated by a young Kurd called Memo, subtly touching the undertones of the explosive Kurdish problem. Memo comes from the east to the sunnier part of the country in the hope of a better future, just to find himself as an underdog in the society.
